Clinic Research

The Clinic team is involved in research projects to help improve the lives of amputee clients.

Some of our current projects include:

Motion analysis

Looking at posture and body mechanics while lifting; looking at wrist motion (comparing prosthetic wrist to human wrists).

Outcome measures

Improving the methods we use to assess how well someone can use a prosthesis.

High-density EMG data collection

This can give us more information about how the muscles work. The data collected from amputees is used by researchers to improve control methods for using a prosthesis.

Pattern recognition

We are working on a new control system for operating a prosthesis, using all the muscles within a socket area.
