dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to analyze the effects Skechers Shape-ups have on muscle activity of the lower extremities in women 50-65 years of age. Although there has been limited research on rocker-soled shoes in relation to muscle activity, there has been no research on the age group mentioned previously. The subjects for this study were recruited using a sample of convenience. Electromyography (EMG) of specified muscles was recorded using MyoResearch XP Master Edition 1.07.25 Software. 12 subjects performed three trials of sit-to-stand, single leg balance, and step-up activities each, as well as a 3 minute walking period with 15 second rest breaks between activities. These were performed while barefoot, wearing regular tennis shoes, and wearing Skechers Shape-ups. The results showed no significant difference in muscle activity, in any of the muscles tested, during any of the functional activities between the three shoe conditions.en_US
