Volunteers Wanted for Autism Gait Study

A research team at Boise State’s Center for Orthopaedic and Biomechanics Research (COBR) is looking for volunteers for a study on how children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder walk.

Jeff Eggleston, adjunct faculty member and the center’s laboratory manager, said the team will use 3-D motion capture technology to study how children with Autism walk compared to similarly aged children without Autism.

The study will take place at the center’s research lab in Ron and Linda Yanke Family Research Park building,
 220 E. Parkcenter Blvd. Each session will last about 90 minutes.

The researchers are looking for children 5-12 years old, who have been diagnosed with Autism.

This research is being conducted under the direction of Janet Dufek, Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, in collaboration with COBR.
