This study examined the effect of guiding information from the elbow on foot proprioception during horizontal perceptual tasks, in individuals who are blind and partially sighted. Eight complete blindness male adults and eight male adults with partially sighted pigmentary retinal degeneration were recruited. Prior to tasks performance, participants acquired gap information (groove length: 5 cm and 20 cm) via a sighted guide which preceded them. Task 1: participants reproduced the length of gaps by stepping their foot forward. Task 2: After the participants acquired the gap information from sighted guide, they performed a gap step-over where it was possible to finish the task within a step. In Task 2, the step length of low-sighted individuals was significantly longer than that of blind individuals in the 20 cm gap width. In this study, the low-sighted individuals tended to predict a larger gap distance than the blind individuals when crossing the gap.
