Interested in sport and exercise science? Need a study break? Come get involved and learn more about how you walk and run!

There’s currently an exciting opportunity for kids and teens to try 3D motion capture and learn about how their body works during exercise at Massey University’s School of Sport and Exercise!

What's the aim of the study?
To investigate how age and body size affects the way children walk and run, including how their joints move, how hard their muscles are working and how much energy their body is using while walking and running on a treadmill at various speeds and how these factors compare to healthy young adults.

We're hoping to identify modifiable barriers to exercise participation to help address why some children and adolescents, are not meeting the recommended amount of physical activity.

What's involved:
- Three visits to Massey University, each lasting approximately 2–3 hours (up to 7 hours for all 3 sessions)
- Participants will be asked to complete walking and running activities on a treadmill
- Session times are flexible

We’re looking for 10–17-year-olds who would like to get involved in the study. Participants will receive $30 worth of vouchers for their time!

For more information, please contact Stacey and ask about the 'Gait Transition' study.
