Touchstone Rehabilitation Accepting Participants for Ground Breaking Amputee Study
Touchstone Rehabilitation partners with A.T. Still University & Cadence Biomedical to offer amputee patients a groundbreaking and innovative option for treatment.
This Sensory Feedback System Research Study is 16 weeks and includes two free months of therapy with 90 minute sessions that are funded by the US Department of Defense. Participants will be compensated in addition to the therapy sessions. The study will determine if amputee participants progress more quickly in their physical therapy rehabilitation using a sensory feedback system than individuals who participate in traditional physical therapy.
Touchstone Rehabilitation is now able to accept interested participants into the study with active treatment beginning the end of September. The sensory feedback study will examine the effect of vibration applied to the residual limb triggered by sensors in the shoe in different phases of gait.
