We are now recruiting participants with lower and upper limb loss for our research studies to test new software and devices that give amputees more control. Questions? Please see our FAQ pageInterested to learn more? Contact us by filling out the form on the right

Lower limb

Our Research

Our lab is developing a next-generation powered prosthesis limb to improve the quality of life for amputees like you. It will be able to understand and predict your intentions (e.g. know when you want to stand/walk and switch tasks seamlessly).

  • Neurally controlled by residual muscle signals to detect your intentions
  • Power provided by an electric motor to enable natural walking

What is Involved?

If you decide to participate, we will work with your schedule to arrange testing sessions in our lab at NCSU (see map to the right). Each session will last approximately 2 hours. During these sessions, you will be asked to perform one or more activities such as:

  • Sit and stand
  • Walk on level ground
  • Walk up and down a short ramp/stairs

 *Compensation will be provided.

Eligibility

  • Lower limb amputee
  • Regular use of prosthetic
  • Between 18 and 70 years old
  • Free from cognitive impairment
  • Free from serious illnesses (i.e. stroke, severe heart disease)

 

Upper limb

Our Research

Our lab is developing a next-generation control of prosthesis arm to improve the quality of life for amputees like you. It will be able to use signals from your muscles to allow for more natural and intuitive control

What is Involved?

If you decide to participate, we will work with your schedule to arrange testing sessions in our lab at NCSU (see map to the right). Each session will last approximately 2 hours. During these sessions, you will be asked to perform one or more activities such as:

  • Control prosthetic hand and wrist
  • Activities of daily living (reaching and grasping, feeding, transferring)

 *Compensation will be provided.

Eligibility

  • Upper limb amputee
  • Between 18 and 70 years old
  • Free from cognitive impairment
  • Free from serious illnesses (i.e. stroke, severe heart disease)
