    Another successful data collection on the West Point cadets Class of 2020!

    novel has had the opportunity to be involved in the research collected the past four years on the new cadets at West Point. This year almost 1,200 cadets participated in the research collected in less than 10 hours. Seven emed-x systems, one emed-xl and 20 volunteers worked hard to collect the data

    Read the Journal of Biomechanics article in which the pedar was used to look at loading in the foot while using a body positive treadmill.

    Smoliga et al has recently published a paper in the Journal of Biomechanics on unweighting in a body positive pressure treadmill and this effect on in-shoe plantar loading at different speeds.
