Muscle strength and tendon size in active and sedentary people

Take part in our study

We are looking for people to participate in research which involves assessing the relationship between muscle strength and tendon size between two groups: sedentary and active. The use of ultrasound will be present to take images of the patellar tendon between the two groups. The participant will abe required to perform maximal voluntary contractions while on the isometric chair.

Participants will need to visit the laboratory for an hour and a half to take the measurements above.

To participate you need to meet the following criteria:

  • Sedentary participants: no participation in recreational sporting activities or training
  • Over the age of 18 years
  • Free from injury
