Runners: Would you like to participate in a research study?
The UMass Biomechanics Lab is starting a study (funded by the American
College of Sports Medicine) to examine the role that regular running plays
in delaying the declines in mobility and joint function that are common in
later life. We want to show that running is actually good for your knees
and not the opposite that all of our non runner friends try and convince us
We are recruiting runners aged 55-75 to participate. The study consists of
two visits: one to the MRI facility in Amherst and one to the Umass
Biomechanics Lab. Participants should have no contraindications for MRI, be
in good general health, have no history of major reconstructive surgery and
not currently have a running injury that causes pain while walking.
If you are interested (or know someone who may be interested), please email
email@example.com or you may call 413-545-4421 and ask for Jocelyn.
