Healthy and Active?
Comparisons of landing biomechanics and patterns of muscle activation in dancers and non-dancers during perturbed and unperturbed drop landings.
The Exercise and Sport Injury Laboratory at the University of Virginia is seeking recreationally active women ages 18 to 28 with at least 3 years of experience in dance, gymnastics, soccer, basketball or running for a research study. The purpose of the study is to determine how athletes who participate in various sports differ in how they land from a jump. This study involves performing a jump landing activity multiple times while wearing small sensors that will allow your hip, knee, and ankle movements to be measured. It consists of a single visit that will last approximately one hour. There are no invasive aspects to this study. No compensation is provided for this study.
