Short Title: Neuromuscular Control CM - Lab
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures

Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Solicited
Aims:

Quantify dynamic stability and neuromuscular control before and after an 8-week strength and conditioning regimen (24 total training sessions) augmented with Leg Dexterity System training during each session.

  • Main Hypothesis: Supplementing an 8-week strength and conditioning regimen with the Leg Dexterity System increases dynamic stabilization and neuromuscular control abilities.

  • Secondary Hypothesis: Despite the sex differences in dexterity levels we have reported in the past, there will be no sex difference in the amount of improvement in dynamic stabilization and neuromuscular control abilities.
