In this study, we want to find out if there are relationships between muscle activation patterns that are shown to predict knee osteoarthritis progression and balance, perceived instability, and a decreased ability to know what position your knee joint is in.
This study will involve one visit to the Human Performance Lab in the School of Kinesiology at the University of the Fraser Valley (Chilliwack campus). This visit will last approximately two hours. You will be asked to fill out questionnaires, complete a balance test, walk on a treadmill while we measure muscle activity of your thigh muscles using non-invasive sensors that stick to the skin above the muscles, and do some strength testing.
This study is being conducted by Dr. Gillian Hatfield, a researcher in the School of Kinesiology at the University of the Fraser Valley.
