Proprioceptive function in persons with spinal cord injury

study logo - lokomat

We are interested in quantitatively measuring proprioceptive function (the ability to sense the position and movement of your limbs) in persons with spinal cord injury.

Your participation will involve: Two laboratory visits of 2-4 hours each, at least one week apart, at the Human Locomotion Research Laboratory at the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre (818 W 10th Ave, Vancouver). We will be measuring your joint angles and leg movements while you are attached to a special rehabilitation device, the Lokomat.

We are looking for interested volunteers who:

  • have had a spinal cord injury at least 6 months ago
  • can stand or walk as part of your daily activities
  • are in stable medical condition
  • have no muscle pain or broken bones

We are also looking for interested volunteers who do not have a history of SCI to serve as controls.

If you are interested in participating or would like some more information, please contact Antoinette or Raza at: or by phone (604) 675-8815
