Arm Motor Control on Bi and Uni ADLs

Arm Motor Control on Bi and Uni ADLs

This study is being performed to assess how certain chronic disabilities - stroke, upper extremity (UE) amputation, spinal cord injuries (SCI), cerebral palsy (CP) - differ from healthy subjects in their ability to perform ADLs. By studying the kinematics of the respective cohort of study participants as they are assessed performing common activities of daily living (ADLS), the investigators research team aims to better understand how impaired neural pathways, and pathways that have been impaired at various points along the pathway, deleteriously affect ADLs in patients with differing long-term disabilities.

No pharmaceutical medication involved
Patients and healthy individuals accepted

Device - Bilateral assessment robots (BiAS)

The BiAS are two passive desktop robots that will be used in this study to measure right and left arm kinematics for 4 different groups of patients.
