Samantha Krammer, Master of Science in Kinesiology student, presented her research study “Do Shaky Knees Lead to Injury” at the 2020 Boise State Graduate College, Three Minute Thesis Competition on February 5th.
The competition is a globally-recognized research communication competition and provides graduate students a high-visibility professional development opportunity.
Krammer’s study highlighted how the weight of loads carried by soldiers in the military can be risk factors of musculoskeletal injury. She used her three minutes to explain how shaky knees are related to such injury and how she was able to test participants to further her hypothesis. Krammer hopes to continue her research to aid military personnel in quantifying injury risk to help avoid musculoskeletal injury in soldiers.
“Graduate students at Boise State are consistently on the forefront of advanced research practices, and this competition provides a snapshot into the exciting scholarship being done by our graduate students here,” said Tammi Vacha-Haase, dean of the Graduate College. “These students showcased the breadth of graduate education, presenting their scholarship in a meaningful way for a diverse audience.”
