Research Study on Reducing Falls
Volunteers are needed to participate in a clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health at the UNO Biomechanics Research Building. Compensation will be provided for time and travel.
We are looking to reduce falls through a slip training study.
You will be asked to visit us for three slip training sessions within a week, while each will not last more than 3 hours. You will complete walking trials on a treadmill and overground, and fill out questionnaires. You will experience a slip while walking overground at an uncertain time and location. You will be wearing a harness at all times for safety. We will assess your movement through state of the art biomechanical assessments.
This study runs through the Fall 2020 semester, and may be extended (IRB # 877-18-EP).
You may participate if you:
Are between the age of 19 to 35, or 65 to 79 years.
You may not participate if you:
- Uncontrolled hypertension
- Peripheral arterial disease
- Menieres disease
- Chronic dizziness
- History of back or lower extremity injury
- Surgery that impacts the subject's mobility
- Any neurological disease or impairment that limits the ability to walk (e.g. stroke, Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis)
