Due to COVID-19, all studies have been suspended until further notice.
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.
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 configuration.
Participants will receive a small monetary compensation for their involvement.
If you would like to participate, please contact Jordan by email (firstname.lastname@example.org@queensu.ca) or phone (613) 533-6000 extension 74590.
To check for eligibility in the study, please fill out our volunteer script and email to Jordan.
