Clinical Trial

Tracking neural synergies during gait rehabilitation after stroke

IRB Protocol Number STU00214290


Alyssa Jones


The Shirley Ryan Ability is seeking healthy individuals to participate in a study in which we are measuring nerve and muscle electrical activity during walking and balance tasks. We want to better understand how the motor control of patients post-stroke changes during rehabilitation.

To accomplish this, we use grids of electrodes placed over the skin of the legs. This measurement technique is called high-density electromyography (HD-EMG).

We are recruiting healthy participants to compare to inpatients post-stroke, who will complete 2 visits lasting 2 hours each and the visits separated by 3 weeks. Healthy volunteers will complete various standing, balancing, and walking tasks while on a treadmill.
