Researchers in the Musculoskeletal and Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory are seeking mothers with children under 5 years old to volunteer for a study on the connection between having children and osteoarthritis.
The Laboratory for Neurophysiology and Biomechanics of Locomotion seeks volunteers for a study on balance and learning in walking gait. Researchers will investigate how challenges to walking balance will lead to learning which will accelerate regaining balance when exposed to novel unstable walking conditions.
Researchers in the department of kinesiology are seeking younger and older volunteers for a study on how fat affects muscle strength. Participants should be between the ages of 25 to 45 or 65 to 75, non-smokers, not pregnant, and free of neurological, pulmonary, cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease.
