Research Study on Walking Stability in Older Adults
We are looking for older adults who have either fallen in the past year, have a history of falls, or have not fallen to participate in a research study at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) Biomechanics Research Building to understand indoor to outdoor walking stability correlations in older adults.
The study involves a one-time 2 hour visit. Participants will be asked to walk on a fixed-speed treadmill, an adaptive speed treadmill for three minutes each, complete a 10 Meter Walk Test, walk outside for six minutes, and complete a set of questionnaires.
Compensation for study participation is available and parking is available in front of the research building.
To be eligible you must be between the ages of 65-80 years, have fallen in the past year and/or have a history of falling, or have not fallen in the past year. You are not eligible for the study if you have a diagnosis of a neurological disease (e.g. stroke, traumatic brain injury or Alzheimer’s) or if you have a diagnosis of osteoporosis.
For more information about the study, please contact Sheridan Parker at the Biomechanics Research Building at 402.554.3225 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The research study runs through May 2020.
