BACKGROUND Lower body positive pressure treadmills (LBPPTs) aim to reduce musculoskeletal loading during running. As LBPPTs have become more commercially available, they have become integrated into athletic performance and clinical rehabilitation settings. Consequentially, published research examining the biomechanical and physiological responses to unweighted running has increased. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this systematic review was to synthesize the literature in an attempt to provide… CONTINUE READING
