KINARM Healthy Controls

The Laboratory of Integrative Motor Behaviour (LIMB) is inviting volunteers of all ages to perform a variety of tasks related to cognitive, sensory, and motor abilities.

Diagram: Cognitive / Sensory / Motor

Our studies require large numbers of people with no known neurological disorders to perform a variety of tasks on three different robotic platforms. This data provides us with a range of healthy behaviour to compare against patients with a neurological impairment (e.g. stroke, Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA or mini-stroke), Parkinson’s disease, A.L.S., Multiple Sclerosis, shoulder replacement surgery, cardiac/general surgeries, kidney disease and concussion).

The KINARM Lab is located in Kingston General Hospital. Testing can be done on either Exoskeleton or EndPoint robotic platforms; the latter has both a sitting and standing version.
