Volunteers needed for a study to improve access to computers

This research investigates the effectiveness of a motion sensor as an assistive technology for the use of computers by individuals with upper limb impairment after stroke, in comparison to other devices, such as a mouse.

The study involves a single session study at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, FMRIB, John Radcliffe Hospital, or at your home if you live within 100 miles from Oxford, UK. You will be reimbursed for your participation.

The study will take about three hours of your time with breaks as required. We will record brain and arm muscle activity while performing different tasks with the computer input devices.

We are looking for stroke survivors aged 18 years and over who have some difficulty moving their hand or arm and a stroke diagnosis at least six months prior to volunteering.

If you are interested and would like more information, please contact Dr Melanie Fleming by emailing melanie.fleming@ndcn.ox.ac.uk. There is no obligation to take part.
