Need Volunteers for Below-Knee Amputee Research Study
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,

This study is open to Veterans and non-Veterans.
