Promoting Patient-Centered Care through use of Standardized Assessments

KT DRRP is a grant supported research project involving a cooperative of research scientists and researchers joined for the advancement of science.

Research Project

Hybrid Prosthetic Leg

Intuitive Control of a Hybrid Prosthetic Leg During Ambulation

A lightweight powered prosthesis with a safe, intuitive control system.

Research Project

Virtual Reality to Treat Phantom Limb Pain

Intuitively Controlled Virtual Reality System to Treat Phantom Limb Pain

We will develop a commercially viable VR rehabilitation system (called the Coapt PLP Management System) which can be deployed at home or in-clinic for individuals with upper or lower limb amputations.

Research Project

MyoNode System Implant Diagram

Real Time Control of a Powered Prosthetic Leg Using Implanted EMG Signals with Sensory Feedback

We will conduct a first-in-human clinical trial to evaluate the effect of incorporating intramuscular EMG signals (obtained using a fully wireless implantable system), compared to surface EMG signals, on function ambulation and non-weight-bearing control of a powered leg prosthesis.

Modeling effects of common genetic polymorphisms on peripheral nerve injury recovery

Every year, over 200,000 Americans sustain a peripheral nerve injury (PNI). Although peripheral nerves have the ability to spontaneously regenerate, 90% of PNI patients do not regain full motor function. Despite ongoing research, the main treatment for peripheral nerve injury—surgery— continues to be performed without the assistance of any medication or other therapies to enhance the rate of axon regrowth.
