The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is seeking adults with stroke to study the physiology of leg muscle activity to create models to allow for the real-time control of a robotic suit (exoskeleton).
During this GeoStroke phase of the study, participants will complete various movements at the hip, knee, and ankle joints. Participants will also perform multi-joint activities such as walking over force plates or walking on a treadmill with varying inclinations and walking speeds.

- English speaking adults
- Ages 18-80
- Individuals diagnosed with stroke at least 6 months prior
- Available to come to the AbilityLab for up to four 4 hour visits
- Walk independently with or without assistive device
