A Longitudinal Investigation: Can the Development of Lower Extremity Osteoarthritis be Predicted from walking Patterns?
Marc Jacofsky, PhD, Bethany Larsen, MS
Description: Current evidence is suggesting that OA may in part be due to the way we walk. Therefore we are interested in following subjects with ‘healthy’ knees and hips over the next 5-10 years so that we can start to discern patterns or predictors that may be indicative of which subjects will go on to develop OA. Positive results would have implication for a larger Phase II study that would look at intervention options that may stave off on-set of the disease.
Status: Enrolling/Data collection Phase I
