Clinical Studies


  • Elbow Flexion Electromyography Characterization After Brachial Plexus Injury Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to measure the electromyographic (EMG) activity in adults who have been affected by a brachial plexus injury. Results from this study will aid in the design of assistive upper extremity orthotic devices.



  • Initial Evaluation of a Powered 2 Degree-of-Freedom Ankle Foot Prosthesis Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to see how you walk with an investigational new type of ankle-foot prosthesis that has been developed, which can allow motion in more than one direction.

  • Intra-operative observation of intramuscular pressure during free functioning muscle transfer Rochester, Minn. Intramuscular pressure (IMP) increases as passive tension is induced. We hypothesize, IMP can be used to identify the optimal length in the gracilis muscle during a free functioning muscle transfer. Additionally, with the aid of a computational model, the placement of the free muscle in the upper limb will be a guide for the maximum force production and optimized function.
  • Leg Dexterity (LD) Rochester, Minn.

    This study aims to establish the clinical feasibility and utility of using the Leg Dexterity test as an objective measure of recovery of neuromuscular control after unilateral ACL injury or ACLr across multiple leading sports rehabilitation centers.

  • Low-Cost Tool for Compliance and Treatment-Tracking of Low Back Pain Patients (LBP) Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of the study is to develop, design and implement an easy-to-use, cloud-enabled software for patients with low back pain and evaluate the effect of the system on compliance and quality of life. We hypothesize that a device which measures compliance to physical therapy regimens in patients with low back pain will increase patient participation.
