Abstract: This study investigates the Reaction Time (RT) to vibrotactile messages presented under the foot plantar on different types of soil. We determine whether reaction time varies while walking on different types of soil (mobile situation). A total of six young participants (n=6) aged between 21 and 28 took part firstly in this study where they had to walk on five types of soil (concrete, carpet, foam, gravel, and sand). The methodology includes 360 repeated measures. The findings have consistently revealed a decrease of reaction time to vibrotactile messages when walking on the three deformable soils (foam, gravel, and sand).
