Dear Members,

We are starting a project investigating gait patterns with surface EMG
in lower limb amputee patients. The majority of these participants are
elderly vascular patients.

I would appreciate any feedback regarding skin preparation for this
population, as shaving and especially abrasion may cause the
skin to break.

A summary of responses will be posted.

Thank you.
