Clinical Trial

Ground Reaction Forces during Distracted Landing

We are seeking healthy adults to volunteer for a study of landing during distracted and non-distracted states. The purpose of this study is to measure if there are differences in landing forces when a the person is focusing on the landing or when they may be distracted with other tasks. Subjects in this study will jump from two different height platforms of 1ft and 2ft numerous times both while forcusing on their landing and while distracted with a basketball task. Testing will take about sixty minutes and only one visit to the lab is required. The study will be conducted in the kinesiology lab at the Forest Hills Campus.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Inclusion Criteria: self-identified as a recreationally active adult. Must be able to drop from the platform up to 50 times. Participants must also be free of injury that would interfere or be exacerbated with landing. Particpants must be 18 years or older. Exclusion Criteria: Anyone determined to be at elevated risk by the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)
