Project Title:  How does exercise affect your muscles?

Chief Investigators

Mr Jarred Gillett (Biomechanist and PhD scholar), Dr Lee Barber, Dr Glen Lichtwark, Prof Roslyn Boyd.

About the Study

Help us understand how different forms of exercise impact how your muscles work. We are comparing different types of exercise and training on how the leg muscles and tendons work in young adult with cerebral palsy. We will be using ultrasound, strength testing equipment, and exercise tests to look at how you and your muscles function before and after exercise training.

Recruitment Criteria

If you (or someone you know) have cerebral palsy, are between the ages of 15‐30 years, and can walk independently, you could really help us. We will be conducting the study during 2015 and 2016 and the findings may help tailor future exercise programs for people with cerebral palsy. If this has sparked your interest and you would like to volunteer, or if you have further questions, please contact us and we can send you an information pack.
