Making a difference
Participants with limb loss are the lifeblood of our research program. They help us collect meaningful data, and bring unique experiences to the research.
What subject participants do
After consenting to participation (informed consent), subject participants come to the lab for a research session. There they work with researchers to complete a data collection procedure for one of our studies. Subjects may stop the study at any time, if they so desire.

The data obtained is kept completely private, in accorance with United States law, and is evaluated by the research team. Subjects may receive a copy of the publication in which their data are used. Of course, subject names are not in publications and the data is de-identified.
Compensation
Research subjects are compensated for their time and for transportation costs. Checks are issued at the end of the day each day the person participates.
