Biomedical engineering researchers write paper evaluating lower-limb sensory neuroprosthesis

Ronald Triolo, professor of biomedical engineering, Hamid Charkhkar, senior research associate in the biomedical engineering department, and Breanne Christie, postdoctoral scholar in biomedical engineering, published a paper evaluating their lower-limb sensory neuroprosthesis.

The paper, published in Nature’s Scientific Reports, evaluated the impact of the neuroprosthesis on maintaining balance. Triolo, Charkhkar and Christie used the Sensory Organization Test and other measures of sway. They found sensory feedback from neural stimulation can significantly improve the standing stability of lower-limb amputees, especially when other sensory inputs are depleted.
