Volunteers needed for barefoot biomechanics study

Recreational runners who wear shoes when they run usually strike with a rear foot strike pattern, which is associated with injury. This study aims to measure how foot strike technique can be altered simply through barefoot running training, retention and transferability to running in modern day running shoes.

This study requires recreational runners who run >20km per week, on average, in a modern running shoe. It will require 2 sessions of running on a treadmill both with and without shoes with both reflective biomechanical markers and surface electrodes placed on the body.
