Subject: Participants Needed for Hopping Fatigue Study
The Neuromechanics Research Core is seeking physically active and healthy
participants for a hopping fatigue study.
Healthy individuals over the age of 18 who do not have a history of lower
body injury, or neurological or orthopedic disorders.
Participants will perform max height jumps, single legged hopping to a
metronome, and single legged calf raises (15 sets of 10 reps). Your ground
reaction force (force plates), muscle activation (EMG), and body movement (3D
motion capture) will be recorded.
Testing will consist of a single 3 hour visit to the Neuromechanics Lab.
Participants will be compensated $50 for participation in the study.
