Evaluation of Haptic Technologies for Movement Retraining
The purpose of this study is to determine how well people can be trained to produce new and different movements through the use of haptic feedback. One particular application is retraining individuals to walk differently in order to reduce knee joint loads to prevent or treat knee osteoarthritis as an alternative to surgical treatments.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
