Development of Adaptive Vacuum Suspension to Improve Prosthetic Fit and Residual Limb Health

Study Overview

Researchers at Indiana University are currently enrolling participants in a research study to better understand the movement of amputated limbs and how the prosthesis impacts health.

Study Description

The data will be used to develop a new type of prosthesis to control limb motion within the socket to improve limb health and functional performance.  This study will look at the movement of an amputated limb and how it affects pressure inside the prosthesis, evaluate the movement of the amputated limb inside the socket and how it affects overall health of the limb and will look at the effectiveness of an adaptive vacuum system compared to standard of care suspension prosthetics (pin-locking or suction).

Participants will be compensated for their participation.
