Participants Needed for Biomechanics Study

The Biomechanics lab at the University of Massachusetts Amherst is looking for individuals to participate in our research study.

To participate you should be active, injury free, and between the ages of 18-65.
The study involves either one visit of 2.5 hours, or two visits of about 1.5 hours. During these visits you will perform a series of double and single leg squats and jumps, as well as walk and run over a force platform while wearing a variety of shoes. Strength testing on two movements will also be conducted.
Help further the research field, check out our lab, and learn about your running form!
