Research study opportunity for student athletes

Boston University researchers are recruiting young soccer/hockey/swimming athletes for a research study to assess risk factors for hip injuries. You may be eligible if you play ice hockey, soccer, or swim; and are between the ages of 9 – 10 or 16 – 18 (for girls) and 10-11 and 16 – 18 (for boys).

The study involves 1-2 visits to BU for a hip MRI and motion capture session. All participants will receive a report from hip MRI and will be paid $75 for completing the study. Parking costs will be reimbursed and if interested, an animation from the motion capture can be provided as well. Evening and weekend appointments are available.
