Researchers at the University of Washington (UW), Seattle, have announced that they are seeking people with bilateral, lower-limb amputations to participate in a mobility-related research study.
In 2012, UW researchers developed the Prosthetic Limb Users Survey of Mobility (PLUS-M), a self-report tool to help clinicians and researchers measure the mobility of adults with unilateral, lower-limb amputations. The PLUS-M is now being tested among those who use bilateral lower-limb prostheses.
Participants must be at least 18 years old; able to read and understand English; have bilateral, lower-limb amputations; use lower-limb prostheses; and have no other amputations. Participation in this study involves completing an online or paper survey and is voluntary. Eligible participants will be paid $25 upon completion of the survey.
