Volunteers with Knee Osteoarthritis Needed for Research Study

Researchers in the department of kinesiology are seeking volunteers for a study investigating how exercise and footwear can impact individuals with knee osteoarthritis.

Participants must: 

  • have knee osteoarthritis
  • be 50-80 years old
  • have a BMI less than 35
  • be able to obtain an MRI
  • be able to walk unaided for more than 20 minutes

Participants will be asked to complete one visit to the Human Magnetic Resonance Center (HMRC) and Human Testing Center of the Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS). The visit will take approximately four hours. During this visit, participants will receive an MRI and walk on a treadmill.
