Participate in a Study of Proprioception (position awareness) in Women with JHS – At Glasgow Caledonian University
They are studying aspects of proprioception, which is the body’s system for determining its movement and position. The aim is to determine if multiple joints in a person’s body have a similar ability to detect movement and position in both healthy young adults and young adults with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome.
To take part you will need to be able to attend the Human Performance Laboratory at Glasgow Caledonian University. In taking part you will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire on physical activity and joint mobility, the researchers will measure your height and weight, and then undertake proprioception tests. To assess your proprioception, the researchers will use a machine called “Biodex system 4 pro” shown in the image above.
To find out more about the study and to get involved contact the research team by:
