Clinical Trial

Real-time neuromuscular control of exoskeletons

IRB Protocol Number STU00212191


Jackson Levine


The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is seeking adults with stroke to study leg muscle activity to create models for real-time control of a robotic suit (exoskeleton).

During this GEOSTROKE phase of the study, participants would sit in a chair with 1 foot strapped to a force sensor plate, and push and pull against the force sensor at different angles, with electrode stickers recording your leg muscle activity. Then participants would switch to the other foot, and repeat the pushing and pulling at different angles. Participants would also complete some standing, balancing, and walking tasks during the visit.

Participants must meet the following criteria:

  • English speaking adults
  • Ages 18-80
  • Individuals diagnosed with stroke at least 6 months prior
  • Able to come to the AbilityLab for 1 visit, lasting 4 hours
  • Walk independently with or without assistive device


Compensation provided upon acceptance.

up to $50 per visit.
