Upper-Limb Prosthetics Focus Group and Questionnaire

The goal of this study is to gather survey input from clinicians and payers of prosthetic technology, about current prosthetics and about a new “neuroprosthetic” technology for individuals with upper limb amputation.

Research Eligibility:

  • Are you over the age of 18?
  • Do you work for or with individuals with an arm amputation?
    • As a Clinician?
    • As a Payer of prosthetic technology?

Able-Bodied Comparison Study for Prosthetics Development

The goal of this study is to provide performance values from an able-bodied control group to use as a comparison to results obtained for our other neuroprosthetic studies.  These studies often involve using movement-related activity to control a computer or prosthetic device, or describing sensations that are experienced during use of a prosthesis.

Research Eligibility:

  • Are you between the ages of 18 and 65?
