Gait Modifications and Cutaneous Stimulation

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT02884414

Purpose

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.
