Lower Limb Strength and Biomechanics in Flatfoot

The SIRPH Research Unit is looking for healthy adults between 18 and 70 years with no history of foot or ankle surgery and no lower limb injuries in the last 6 months to participate in a study investigating lower limb strength and biomechanics. Participants in this healthy group will constitute a reference group for data obtained from people with painful flatfoot condition. You would be required to attend the University of Queensland School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at St Lucia for 2 sessions of testing (5 hours total), where a range of clinical and laboratory measurements will be taken, and will be recompensed reasonable expenses.

Lower limb strength and biomechanics in flatfoot

The SIRPH Research Unit is looking for people with pain on the inside of the ankle and/or foot to participate in a study investigating lower limb strength and biomechanics in a condition called posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD). You would be required to attend the University of Queensland School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at St Lucia initially for 2 sessions (5 hours total), where a range of clinical and laboratory measurements will be taken, and will be recompensed reasonable expenses. Following this, you will be provided with a 12 week hip strengthening program after which the measurements will be taken again.
