Protocol: STUDY00005631
Full Title
Evaluation of a Novel Movement-based Controller for a Multi-DOF Prosthetic Wrist in a Virtual Reality Environment.
Description
We are seeking Transradial amputee’s participation in a research study aiming to evaluate a novel controller for a prosthetic wrist. This study investigates the performance of the controller during activities of daily living in a virtual reality environment. Upper limb movement and muscle activation will also be collected using Motion Capture Systems and different types of sensors. Study will be done at Furnas Hall 809, AWEAR Lab, University at Buffalo North Campus.
