Brief Survey for Individuals with Disabilities of the

Lower Limbs 

 

 

The Independent Living Research Utilization (ILRU) has partnered with City University of New York and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston on a project titled “Lightweight and Affordable Soft Knee Exoskeletons to Enhance Independent Living for Broad Lower-Limb Disability Populations.” For this project, ILRU seeks to gain new information on how people with lower limb disabilities navigate in their communities on a daily basis, assess how mobility-related disabilities of the lower limbs impact quality of life, and determine the common mobility aids used by persons with disabilities of the lower limbs.

 

Please help us by completing this survey or by sharing this survey with your staff and consumers by Friday, June 18th. The survey should be completed by individuals with disabilities of the lower limb(s), including but not limited to amputation, post traumatic arthritis, lower limb disability due to neuromuscular disorders such as muscular dystrophy, or muscular injury of the lower limbs due to stroke. The survey is available at https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/6197950/General-Mobility.

 

Participants may decline to answer any questions shown on any forms or asked. Participation in this study is voluntary. A decision not to take part in this study will not change the services available to participants from the Principal Investigator or study staff.

 

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact Brooke Curtis at ILRU via email at brooke.curtis@memorialhermann.org.
