The University of Alabama Huntsville [UAH] is looking for amputee participants who are interested in assisting with their aquatic rehabilitation program.
According to Shannon Mathis, Ph.D. in the Department of Kinesiology at UAH, the program is designed to help amputees improve their ability to walk with their prosthetic device. Overall their goal is to improve muscle strength, balance and walking endurance, as well as reduce the risk of falling.
The program, which is tailored to the individual amputee, is three days per week, for eight weeks and each session is one hour in length. There is no cost to participate in the program, and for your participation they will pay $100 to each individual at the end of the program.
