Would you like to be a research participant in developing the next generation of prosthetic legs that can be controlled by your nerves and muscles but do not want surgery?
This study is approved by the Swedish Ethical Review Authority and is conducted with Sahlgrenska University Hospital and our medical device partners such as Integrum.
We are looking for adult lower limb amputees to control a prosthetic leg with muscle signals. The signals will be recorded by adhesive electrodes placed on your skin, there will be no surgery. We will assess your control of the prosthetic limb with some physical tests like walking up a slope or controlling a virtual limb on a screen while you are sitting down.
As a result of your participation, we expect to be able to offer lower limb amputees a prosthetic leg that can be controlled using the muscles of the body. We expect this to provide a more natural and smooth walking movement since the prosthetic leg will predict the user’s intention.
Assessments will be performed at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Mölndal, Sweden.
