MiPACE – Michigan Performance and Aerobic Capacity During Exercise

KinesiologyTrdmllStdy22(064) copy

The MiPACE study is a large-scale investigation looking at over 200 runners, and how fitness and health metrics change over an 18+ month period.

Using wearable technology to track in-life data, and lab-based measures to assess musculoskeletal biomechanics and cardiorespiratory physiology, the MiPACE study is one of the largest of its kind. The results will have a profound impact on running related research questions, including training volumes, running related injury risk factors, and the effect of COVID-19 on running related fitness.

The MiPACE study aims to investigate the effect of  exercise training on cardiorespiratory improvements for those training for a running related event. The project is evaluating the following:

  • Effect of volume, intensity, and frequency of training on cardiorespiratory fitness
  • Running related injury risk factors
  • Use of consumer-based smart wearable sensors to estimate exercise training volume
  • Adaptations in body composition and bone mineral density
