We are currently developing a wearable biofeedback system for use with lower-limb prostheses. Once developed the biofeedback system could serve as a training tool for lower-limb amputees to improve gait and balance. This study aims to help us better understand how to design such device.
Each participant will attend two 1-hour sessions at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. During the experiments, you will be wearing a “mock socket” with small vibrating motors on your thigh. You will be instructed to react to vibration, flex and extend your right knee.
