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.
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.
