SAVANNAH — Armstrong State University’s Biodynamics and Human Performance Center is seeking adults older than 60 for a study sponsored by Biodex Medical Systems. The goal is to identify a test that can be used to screen individuals at risk for falls.

The study, seeking both men and women, will use and evaluate a machine that notes the movement of individuals attempting to balance on a non-moving platform.

The study requires participants to have neither a history of lower-body musculoskeletal or neurological problems, nor undergone a serious surgery in the past year. Prior to participating, other health stipulations, such as heart disease, will be screened.

Participants should be available for a single test lasting no longer than 30 minutes and will be compensated with a Kroger gift card.

If you qualify and would like to participate in either study, contact Kelsey Piersol at or (912) 247-2982.
