THOR is an important medical study investigating the musculoskeletal health of men with and without haemophilia A.

Volunteers will undergo a free comprehensive musculoskeletal health assessment at Monash Medical Centre upon entry into the study and again after 12 months.

The assessment combines state-of-the-art imaging techniques with functional muscle testing to generate a complete picture of your muscle and bone health.
