Open Research Studies

  • Researchers are inviting you to be in an aerobic training study measuring fatigue, heart rate and VO2.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a study investigating the muscular activation levels and shoulder joint forces placed on the shoulder during specific pull-up and push-up exercises.
  • Researchers are Inviting You to Participate in A Research Study about Early Intervention Services for Young Children with Delayed Motor Development
  • Researchers are looking for participants in a study investigating how weight gain may affect the lower extremity during activities of daily living (ADLs), such as level walking, sitting and standing from a chair, and stair walking.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a study involving body armor. This study will determine the effects of body armor, fatigue, and gender on performance and mechanics during tactical tasks.
  • Researchers are conducting a study regarding long-term outcomes after ACL reconstruction. You may be eligible if you are between 18-35 years old and have a history of ACL reconstruction.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a study about how chronic ankle instability may contribute to the development of post-traumatic ankle osteoarthritis and knee osteoarthritis.
  • Researchers are conducting a study to help better understand the functional deficits of individuals with and without chronic ankle instability (CAI) throughout their lower limbs.
  • Researchers are conducting a study to investigate the effects of a program designed to improve care for patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Researchers are conducting a study to investigate the effects of strength training on movement patterns and physical function in people with obesity. You may be eligible if you are a woman between the ages of 30 and 50, have a BMI of over 30, have had a stable weight for the past 6 months, and do not exercise regularly.
  • Researchers are conducting a study with boys and girls to help determine “the best” protocol (method) to use when testing children’s fitness level on a treadmill.
  • Researchers are inviting you to take part in a research study about medications that are used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, including methotrexate.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a study to examine the effects of a current treatment modality on balance and its components.
  • Researchers are conducting a study to investigate the effects of ACL reconstruction or hip arthroscopy and how it relates to lower back pain. You may be eligible if you are 18-40 years old, have had ACL or hip surgery, are at least 1 year post surgery, and have not had any history of low back pain.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a study to learn more about dietary intake, physical activity patterns and outcomes in people who have a history of ACL reconstruction.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a study for hip and joint research.
  • Researchers are conducting a study to identify normal movement mechanics which will help evaluate function and performance in injured populations.
  • Researchers are studying how aerobic exercise can affect brain activity and attention in children ages 7-11.
  • Researchers are conducting a study to examine if lumbar spine movement can be improved by using an orthosis (hip brace).
  • Researchers are studying how certain molecules may play an important role in your health and adaptation to exercise.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a study about the effects of very short term, dynamic constant external resistance (DCER) exercise on lower body neuromuscular responses.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a sports related concussion study. Participants will complete surveys that will review self-reported injury history and other outcome variables.
  • Researchers are inviting you to participate in a study examining shoulder blade motion. This study will help us understand how the shoulder blade moves in healthy individuals.
