Volunteer opportunity (research) for stroke survivors

Faculty of Medicine and Health University of East Anglia

“Relationship between neuromuscular recovery, functional ability and sleep after stroke, and, criterion validity of measures made by the Vicon and Biokido motion analysis systems”

In detail we are recruiting adults who have had a stroke and do not have a latex allergy. This project will involve measuring your movement whilst you pick up a telephone several times. To measure your movement, we will stick small reflective markers and sensors on your skin. You will complete some questionnaires about how you sleep. No painful or intrusive methods are used. You will need to attend two 90-minute sessions in the Movement and Exercise Laboratory at the University of East Anglia. And you will wear a motion watch on each wrist for 7 days to measure your everyday activity at home.
