This research project is looking at the influence of footwear on knee movement patterns in: knee-healthy people and people with ACL reconstructions.

The project is led by:

Associate Professor Gisela Sole
School of Physiotherapy, University of Otago

Man stapped to a chair exercising his leg image

Who are we seeking to participate in the project?

  • Seeking people, aged 16 to 40 years, who have undergone an ACL reconstruction between 6 months and 5 years previously

What will you be asked to do?

Participants will attend one laboratory session for movement pattern and muscle strength assessment.

They will perform jumping and stepping tasks in shoes, and with inserts placed in the shoes.

The researcher (a physiotherapist) will provide feedback about the thigh muscle strength, which the participant may find helpful to plan their on-going maintenance programme. Participants will be offered reimbursement of costs incurred of $50 if within the Dunedin metropolitan area, and $120 when travelling from Central Otago or Southland.
