The paper described movement and muscle characteristics of 10 ALS patients and 10 age-matched healthy subjects. This data was collected at Eleanor and Lou Gehrig ALS center at Columbia University using the novel neck brace designed at ROAR laboratory. Other studies are also being currently performed using this neck brace at Helen Hayes Medical Center in New York.
