Running study

There is limited research in running kinematics, especially in curved and banked running on a 200m track. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to offer insight into understanding the running kinematic sex differences in a banked 200m indoor track. Special sensors will be used to record body kinematics patterns while you are running. This works by tracking the body segments to provide an estimation of joint angles. 


Testing will be at the McGill University Fieldhouse. Three conditions will be tested, 

1) straight running: on lane 1 

2) banked curve: on lane 1 

3) flat curve 


First, you will have your height and weight recorded, along with other body measurements. You will then be asked for permission to place the sensors on your skin as shown in the picture. These 17 small sensors will be wireless and held in position by placing them with medical and double side tape; you will then receive instructions to perform five trials per condition.


What to bring

  • shorts
  • long compression tights
  • usual running shoes


In order to facilitate the placement of the sensors please show up wearing either compression or loose shorts. Once sensors are placed you will change into your compression tights.


The total study will take 2 hours, and as a compensation for your participation, video files of your 3D avatar will be shared with you. Please let me know if you are interested in participate or if you have further questions.
