SHOE TESTERS NEED FOR RUNNING SHOE RESEARCH JOIN THE ELIGIBILITY LIST Do cushioned running shoes prevent injuries or cause them? Does a running shoe with an elevated heel speed you up or slow you down? Researchers at the University of Newcastle are planning a series of studies to determine how basic differences in running shoe design, such as heel elevation and degree of cushioning, affect injury rates and distance running performance. A eligibility list of runners interested in taking part in this research is now being created. Runners on the eligibility list will be contacted when runners are being recruited to take part in this research. All Australian runners aged 18 or over are eligible for inclusion on the eligibility list. If you would like to be considered for inclusion in these studies, please complete the online survey accessible via this link. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Eligibility_Survey For further information please contact Dr Craig Richards E Craig.Richards@newcastle.edu.au T 0438 264 264 Complaints about this research This project has been approved by the University’s Human Research Ethics Committee, Approval No. H-2011-0244.
