Trial ID or NCT#



not recruiting iconNOT RECRUITING


The purpose of this study is to quantify differences in joint mechanics between different types of walking in healthy individuals and individuals with knee pathology. The investigators will determine how modifying gait through feedback and/or cutaneous stimulation changes joint loading.

Official Title
