Shim, Jae Kun
Sponsor: NIH - NIAMS (National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases)
This project will test the hypothesis that running with running-specific prostheses causes greater strain (measured by joint kinetics) on individuals with lower-extremity amputations, increasing the risk for injuries and degenerative joint diseases in intact limbs. Few studies provide insights into...
