1/6 Physical activity is associated with a certain risk of injury, the type and severity of which depends on the kind of activity and the conditions of practice.
2/6 The Sports Medicine Research Laboratory of CRP-Santé has developed an original system designed to prevent sports injuries; this system is known as the TIPPS.
3/6 The TIPPS is basically a perfected electronic agenda into which the athlete uploads his/her training session characteristics and reports any episodes of pain or injury.
5/6 The staff members and the medical team receive warnings if an athlete is at an increased risk of injury as defined by specific indicators.
We are recruiting!
We will soon be launching a new study on “biomechanical risk factors of running-related injuries“, and are therefore looking for regular runners (at least one running session/week on average) who are currently not injured, are familiar with running on a treadmill and have shoe size 38 or larger.
This would include a free analysis while running (sub-maximally) for an initial 15 minute warm-up followed by 5×2 minute intervals (of varying sub-maximal running speeds) on a treadmill in our laboratory, with a full feedback report provided. The analysis will last around an hour.
If you are interested in taking part, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, mentioning your telephone number. The project manager (Robert Mann) will get back to you with further details.
If you know any fellow runners who may also be interested in the study, please pass on the message.
We look forward to welcoming you into our lab!
