Description of Study:

The Gait Biomechanics Lab is currently looking for healthy older adults and older adults with knee osteoarthritis aged 55-70 to participate in a walking study. The study consists of one lab visit lasting roughly 2 hours and 3 days of wearing small noninvasive sensors during your normal daily activity. Participants will be compensated with a $75 check. If you are interested, please contact Julien Mihy at gaitbiomechlab@udel.edu.

Will participants be compensated for participation?
Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria:

We are currently looking for healthy older adults and older adults with knee osteoarthritis aged 55-70. Individuals with a cardiovascular, neurological, or pulmonary condition that limits daily activity may be excluded from this study.
