Current Projects

  • Is variability in training and gait behavior during running associated with retrospective injuries in runners? The purpose of this study is to investigate the association of running gait and training variability with retrospective running-related injuries in runners. (Dr. Paquette, collaboration: Dr. Clare Milner)

  • Effects of elliptical training on pain, motor function, muscle strength and knee joint kinetics during walking in people with knee osteoarthritis. The purpose of this pilot study is to assess the effectiveness of a 6-week elliptical training intervention on knee pain, QOL, motor function, quadriceps strength, and gait behavior in people with knee OA. (Dr. Paquette, collaboration: Dr. Audrey Zucker-Levin, Dr. Paul DeVita, Dr. William Mihalko: funded by The University of Memphis Faculty Research Grant Fund)

  • Footwear effects on agility and balance performance following reactive agility training. The purpose of this study is to test the effect of footwear type on agility, speed, and balance variables following a 6-week agility training intervention. (Josh Bravo/Dr. Paquette, Master’s Thesis Project)

  • Relationship of Lower-body Dimensions and Upper-leg Angular Orientation to Vertical Jump Performance. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship of lower-body segmental dimensions, and quadriceps angle with vertical jump performance in young adults. (Johnpaul Caia/Dr. Weiss).

  • The Effects of Footwear Conditions on Maximal Jumping Performance.The purpose of this investigation is to examine the effects different footwear conditions (barefoot, minimal shoes and traditional athletic shoes) have on maximal effort vertical jump and standing long jump performance, particularly through ground reaction forces and muscle activation. (John Harry/Dr. Schilling, Master’s Special Project: funded by NSCA Graduate Student Grant)

  • Performance predictors of power output in elite and sub-elite cyclists during seated and standing cycling. The purpose of this study will be to investigate lower extremity biomechanical predictors of power output of elite and sub-elite cyclists during seated and standing cycling (Joe Hoekstra/Dr. Paquette, Master’s Thesis Project: funded by Precis Velo, LLC)

  • An eight-week reactive balance training program in older healthy adults: a preliminary investigation. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of an 8-week agility training program on reaction time, foot speed, static balance and balance confidence in healthy older adults. (Dr. Paquette/Dr. Li: funded by The QuickBoard, LLC)

  • Effects of MSM supplementation on oxidative stress, inflammation, and functional and athletic measures of performance following eccentric exercise. The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of MSM on oxidative stress, inflammation, and physical performance following eccentric exercise in recreationally active men. (Dr. Paquette/Dr. Schilling/Dr. Bloomer: funded by Bergstrom Nutrition)
