Biomechanics Running Study at UC

Lauren Heitkmap is a Master's student at the University of Cincinnati and is currently seeking volunteer participants for a research study.  Her research study investigates human movement using a 3D motion capture technology on how gait changes while walking or running barefoot. Participants will be asked to walk and run naturally on a treadmill while wearing shoes and while barefoot as motion and muscle data are collected.
Volunteers need to be fit and healthy (with a normal BMI), run on average about 25 miles a week, have no gait-related injuries or irregularities, and between the ages of 18 and 30.
 Participation requires 2 hours and new running shoes will be provided to participants that may be taken home after the study. If you wish to participate, please contact: Lauren Heitkamp:, or 513-601-9135.
