Runners-knee_SAG

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

The project is led by Associate Professor Gisela Sole from the School of Physiotherapy, University of Otago.

Who are we seeking to participate in the project?

  • Seeking men and women, aged 16 to 40 years, who have undergone an ACL reconstruction between 1 and 5 years previously

OR

  • Also seeking men and women, aged 16 to 40 years, who have not had an ACL rupture in the past.

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.

For further information about the study please read the Information Sheet.
