Need Volunteers for Below-Knee Amputee Research Study

Need Volunteers for VA research study for below-knee amputees

We are doing a research study to see if using a Fitbit pedometer and an online peer group changes how much people with a lower limb amputation walk.  Participants will receive a Fitbit pedometer and be paid for their time. Participation will last for 2 years.

We are looking for people who are 18 - 89 years of age who:

  • have Internet Access,
  • a below-knee amputation involving only one leg,
  • used a prosthesis for 6 months
  • walk with their prosthesis at least 4 hours per day.

If you are interested in learning more about the study and being screened eligibility,
please call Jan Pecoraro at 206-764-2962.
This study is open to Veterans and non-Veterans.
