Research Study Recruitment

Manual Wheelchair Virtual Coach - Pilot Trial

Are you 18 years of age or older using a manual wheelchair at least 30 hours per week and have not had any pressure ulcers within the past 30 days?

Rory Cooper, PhD of the Human Engineering Research Laboratories and the University of Pittsburgh along with his team want to evaluate a new device that helps people with spinal cord injuries manage pressure reliefs and assess its general usability.

If you would like to participate in this research study, you will be asked to take home the prototype installed onto your personal manual wheelchair along with a smartphone to be used for the duration of the study. You may be compensated up to $100 for completing the entire study.

If you have questions about the research study, please contact one of our Clinical Coordinators at 412-822-3700.
