    Hi All,
    I am looking for barefoot runners around Melbourne. I am a PhD student running a study on the long-term adaptations happening in the feet due to barefoot running.

    Inclusion criteria:
    male, 18 to 40 years old
    being running for more than 3years
    running more than 40Km per week

    You will have:
    FREE ultrasound scan of foot muscles
    FREE CT scan of foot bones (if meeting criteria)
    FREE foot pressure distribution
    FREE report on running style

    we will also test your dynamic balance and toe strength!

    Study consists of two main sessions: 1) Fam session, and 2) Running session.
    We will test your ability to adjust your running style and adjust to different shoes.

    If you are interested send me an email and I will provide more info.
    Many thanks

    Alessandro
