Enhancing Upper Limb Prostheses With Radio Frequency Identification
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||below elbow amputation|
|Sponsor||Infinite Biomedical Technologies|
|Start date||August 2013|
|End date||April 2014|
|Trial size||10 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01967004, RFID-IBT-3600|
The purpose of this study is to determine if Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) can lead to greater prosthesis function and control. Subjects are asked to perform specific tasks and actions using the traditional control method, as well as RFID control.
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
|Primary purpose||supportive care|
Time required to perform different functional tasks
time frame: 12 weeks
Questionnaires on prosthesis function and satisfaction
time frame: 20 minutes per questionnaire, total of 3 different questionnaires administered twice each
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: 1. Age 18 or greater. 2. Below elbow amputation, unilateral or bilateral. 3. Chronic stable amputation: > 6 months from amputation. 4. Stable prosthesis prescription: > 3 months since last major prosthesis modification. 5. Cognitively intact, as determined by Mini-Mental Status Examination score > 24. 6. Able to provide informed consent and available to participate in study activities. 7. No severe residual limb motor/sensory impairment or pain likely to interfere with treatment. 8. Expected to be medically and psychiatrically stable for study duration. Exclusion Criteria: 1. Patients with diseases which weaken and/or adversely affect the control of skeletal muscle. 2. Patients with poor skin integrity.
