->Biomechanics Lab: Running Training Study

Enrollment will continue in January 2019.

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a 13-week running training program will change your running form. The running training includes a typical week of running for you plus 12 weeks of progressively increasing your mileage (13 weeks total). Participation includes 5 visits to the lab (enrollment, three running gait analyses, end of enrollment appointment), following the prescribed training program, and running with two small activity monitors.

Participants must be generally healthy, 18-40 years old, have a weekly running volume of at least 10 miles per week, have been running for 12-24 months, and participants must be able to run for 30 minutes without stopping.

Participants will receive a $100 Target gift card and a detailed running analysis report (a $200+ value) upon completion of the 13-week running training program.

If you are interested in participating, please email Dr. Allison Gruber at  (IRB study #1703809264)

->Reading Proficiency - Concussion Assessment Tool

We would like to invite you to participate in the research study entitled: “An effect of reading proficiency on saccadic eye movement.” The purpose of this study is to determine the effects that reading proficiency has on a simple sideline concussion assessment tool. This test will consist of having you read a set of numbers from left to right out loud as fast as possible, while making the least amount of errors.

In order to participate in this study you must be between the age of 18-26, currently enrolled in at least 9 credits at IU-Bloomington, and have taken the SAT in the past.

What do I need to bring with me?
All you will need to bring with you is proof of your SAT reading scores (i.e., screenshot, print-out, or pull up the website on your phone).<e

How long will this take?
You will be at your appointment for no longer than 10-15 minutes. At the meeting we will explain the study in further detail and provide you with a consent form (2-3 minutes). Following this, we will obtain your demographic information through a brief online survey (2-3 minutes), test your vision quickly (<1 minute), then have you perform the quick and simple eye movement test (~1 minute).

Where do I go for testing?
All testing will take place in the upstairs Athletic Training – Suite in SPH. In order to get here, there is a stairwell to the left of the C100 Auditorium, take this stairwell up one flight and you will reach the suite. Testing will be in either C206 or C203 – they are across the hall from each other and the examiner will always be waiting for you in case you have troubles finding the rooms.
