Clinical Trial

Experimental Robotic Prosthesis for Transfemoral Amputees

Study Description

Adaptive Recalibration of Prosthetic Leg Neural Control System

The purpose of this study is for transfemoral amputees to walk with an experimental robotic prosthesis. Electric signals will be measured from their muscles and used to help control an artificial leg. The investigators will record from sensors placed on a prosthesis and electric signals measured from muscles in the participants leg to see if the investigators can develop better computer programs to help predict subject actions and prostheses function.
