Attention Alpine Ski Racers: undergrad project

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction – Semitendinosus Tendon Autograft Resistance Testing

The ACLR-START study is recruiting participants! We are looking for actively competing elite alpine ski racers who underwent an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction at least two years ago. This operation must have involved a semitendinosus tendon autograft procedure. Participants in ACLR-START can be male or female, between the ages of 15-30. Testing will occur at the University of Calgary and Winsport facilities. The two hour session will include a “DEXA” full body composition scan and comprehensive strength testing with a dynamometer. If you think you or anyone you know fits the description for participants provided above, please contact Mike Christie at:
