Volunteer for a Research Study

Volunteers are needed to participate in a research study on knee surgery and gait. The study, “A comparison of limb symmetry in individuals with single and multiple knee surgeries,” aims to determine how single and multiple knee surgeries influence how people move compared to people who have never had surgery.

Participants qualify if they are between 18-65 years old, have had one or more knee surgeries on the same knee, have not been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, and are able to run.

Participants will come to the Sports Injury Research Center at the UNLV Maryland Campus for up to two and a half hours and walk, jog, perform a balance test, and a strength test.

They may also be asked to wear a Fitbit for one week. Participants will receive a $5 gift card.

For more information, please contact Devin Kelly. The Principal Investigator for this research study is Julia Freedman Silvernail.
