VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR RESEARCH STUDY

Proprioceptive deficits in Essential Tremor

We are seeking volunteers who suffer from essential tremor, as well as healthy individuals who will serve as a control group. The study aims to understand how essential tremor influences the ability to use sensory information about the body, and how these problems may limit function. Testing will take ~2 hours.

The study might be a good fit for you if:

 

  • You are aged 18 years or older.

            AND

  • You have been diagnosed with essential tremor, or you think you may have essential tremor.

OR

  • You have no history of neurological or orthopaedic problems affecting your arms and hands.

 

If you decide to take part you would be assessed on your ability to:

  • Perform tests of arm and hand function.
  • Answer questionnaires on arm and hand function.

You will be offered $20 per hour as remuneration for your time.

If you would like to learn more about this study, please contact Martin Héroux at 02 9399 1832 or m.heroux@neura.edu.au
