Research Participants Needed for Exercise Science Study

The Effect of External Trunk Perturbations on Lower Extremity Landing Biomechanics

Dr. Kate Pfile and two Exercise Science students (Elizabeth King and Ana Miletich) are conducting research this summer on the effect of external trunk perturbations on lower extremity landing biomechanics.

What to expect:
We will hook you up to a full body marker set (as seen in the flyer photo), this marker set will record body movements and will give us data on how your body reacts to external perturbations (slight pull in one direction or another) while you jump off a 30 cm (12 in) step. Data collection takes places at the Locomotion Energetics and Assessment Lab at MUSC and lasts about 90 minutes. All participants receive a CofC-themed prize of their choice (valued at $15-20), such as a water bottle, pint glass, mug, etc!

Inclusion Criteria:
– Between ages 18-44
– At least 3 years experience in a jumping/landing intensive sport (soccer, basketball, volleyball, dance, etc…)
– Participate in at least 90 minutes of moderate physical activity/week
– No previous lower extremity surgery or history of lower extremity injury in the past 6 months
If you are unsure if you’re qualified to participate, reach out to us anyways!

If interested, please email for more information! Thank you!
