Helen Hayes Hospital Center in West Haverstraw is seeking volunteers with spinal cord injury to participate in a spinal reflex training study. Participants are asked to stand or walk while measurements are made. Surface electrodes are placed on the skin over arm or leg muscles for monitoring muscle activity and over a nerve to produce reflex responses in the muscles. Nerve stimulation may cause a brief mild sensation.
Participation will take less than 90 minutes per session. Volunteers will be paid and efforts will be made to accommodate participants’ schedules.
For additional information on the study, or to be screened for participation, please contact Laura Tenteromano, at 845-786-4854 or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
