Muscle-Based Control Of Advanced Upper-Limb Prostheses

The goal of this study is to record muscle activity while a person performs a variety of hand and arm movements in order to help develop advanced prosthetic limbs.

Research Eligibility:

  • Do you have an arm amputation?
  • Are you at least 1 year post amputation?
  • Are you between the ages of 18 and 70?

Spinal Cord Stimulation for Sensory Restoration and Phantom Limb Pain Reduction after Upper-Limb Amputation

The goal of this study is to understand the types of sensations produced by electrical stimulation of a person’s spinal cord and spinal roots, as well as the effects of stimulation on phantom limb pain and ability to control a prosthetic limb.

Research Eligibility:

  • Do you have an arm amputation?
  • Are you at least 1 year post amputation?
  • Are you between the ages of 18 and 70?

Spinal Cord Stimulation for Restoration of Function after Lower-Limb Amputation

The goal of this study is to understand the types of sensations produced by electrical stimulation of a person’s spinal cord and spinal roots, as well as the effects of stimulation on phantom limb pain and ability to control a lower-limb prosthesis.

Research Eligibility:

  • Do you have a leg amputation?
  • Are you at least 1 year post amputation?
  • Are you between the ages of 18 and 70?
