The School of Health and Medical Sciences would like to invite you
to participate in a continuing study on the relationship of the
menstrual cycle on postural sway and equilibrium response in women.
Subjects will record hormone levels for 2 months. Balance responses
will be recorded using the Balance Master 6.1 under different sensory
conditions and during functional tests on 3 separate occasions. Each
meeting should take about 1 hour, and participation is voluntary. All
tests are completely noninvasive.
In order to participate, you must be a female between the ages of 18-28
years old with a normal 26 to 34 day menstrual cycle for the past six
months. You must have no previous history of lower extremity injury for
the past six months, and not be taking hormone supplements or oral
contraceptives for the past three months.
To preserve your anonymity and confidentiality, you will be assigned a
code number which will be used on all data collected.
