Volunteer for Study of Effects of Physical Activity

Men Aged 55-70!

Learn more about your leg strength and walking style!


Researchers at the University of Massachusetts- Amherst are studying how age and physical activity history change your leg strength and the way you walk.


The following criteria must be met to qualify for the study.

  • Healthy body weight
  • Ability to walk unaided for 40 minutes
  • No cardiovascular, respiratory or neurological problems.
  • No history of major reconstructive surgery in lower limb
  • No frequent participation in strength training or vigorous exercise


Participants will be asked to complete two study visits to the Musculoskeletal & Orthopedic Biomechanics Lab. One visit will involve filling out questionnaires. The second visit will be a 3 hour visit during which we will collect strength and walking data. Participants will receive a $25 gift card.
