Clinical Trial

Robotic Interventions For Spasticity Treatment

IRB Protocol Number STU00213328


Project Coordinator Grace Hoo


The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is seeking individuals post-stroke to study the benefits of receiving visual and physical feedback during ankle exercises to improve movement and reduce stiffness caused by spasticity.

This study involves using an ankle robot to deliver treatments to target spasticity. Participants will wear the robot on their weaker foot and move their ankle while sitting for a single pilot visit.

Our visual feedback will look like a video game. You will control a character on the screen based on your ankle muscle contractions and ankle position. The ankle robot will provide physical feedback based on your muscle contractions.

Who Can Participate

Participants must meet the following criteria:

  • English speaking adults
  • Ages 18-80 years
  • Individuals diagnosed with stroke
  • Walk independently with or without assistive device for 10 meters (30 feet) or more

Able to move affected foot.


Provided upon acceptance and participation in study.
