The goal of this particular study of subjects without knee OA is to better understand how providing a knee joint perturbation through walking on a laterally inclined treadmill affects the biomarker (biological) response of the knee joint. Overall this pilot study is expected to improve our understanding of the relationship between biomechanical load placed on the knee joint and serum biomarkers of cartilage degradation and inflammation.
