Relationship between the perception and  human adaptation in the environment is used in different fields such as neuroscience, robotic, sport science, cognitive science and etc. To investigate the interaction between perception and kinematic& neuromuscular parameters, one method could be imposing a perturbation to the system. Human movement as a complex system is considered as the target system in many projects.

In running, shoe mass as the perturbation factor is considered in five different ranges. The perceived discomfort is measured subjectively through questionnaire in all ranges. In the other hand, kinematic&neuromuscular parameters are measured objectively in every range. Another perturbation factor which has been imposed to the system is shoe inclination. The perceived discomfort subjectively and kinematic&neuromuscular parameters are measured objevtively in five ranges. The aim of the project is to determine the threshold of subjective measurement among five conditions (according to the perturbation factors) and evaluate neuromuscular and kinematic behaviour in upper and lower range of the perception threshold.
