NIH Research Subjects Needed at SCSU

Would you be able to assist by referring potential participants for a study at SCSU? 

Dr. Carol Callahan asked to share information with you from Mark Roser, a mechanical engineer, who designed an in-shoe exoskeletal device that off-loads the forefoot up to 30% by transferring weight on to the tibia and down into the exoskeletal.  It resembles and articulated ankle brace.  

For more information visit https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28859516 .

19 participants are needed to complete the Phase 2 NIH granted study in order to qualify for application for Phase 3. Participants need to be age 18-80 with a history of diabetes, foot ulcer (no open wounds) and have the ability to walk independently.
