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.

If you would like to participate, please email or call Simone (simone.appaqaq@queensu.ca) or (613) 533-6000 extension 74590.

 

We have another study for your interest!

We are looking for healthy adults to take part in a study of sensory and motor functions. Your data provides us with understanding of sensory feedback for our ability to move and interact in the world.

Males, over the height of 160 cm (5”3’) volunteers with no known neurological or musculoskeletal disorders are needed.

As a participant in this study, you are invited to perform an upper-arm motor task with KINARM Lab Exoskeleton robotic platform while recording muscle activity using non-invasive surface electrodes.

The KINARM Lab is located in Abramsky Hall, Queen’s University.

Your participation will take approximately 2 hours.

In appreciation for your time, you will receive a small monetary compensation for your involvement of $30.

If you would like more information or would like to schedule a time to participate, please email Shoko (shoko.kasuga@queensu.ca).
