Study Information

Purpose of Study

Your data will be used within a pool of other people to act as age-matched controls to help other researchers compare to their patient populations such as Stroke, MS, TIA, Concussion, Dialysis, Cardiac Surgery, Critically Ill to name a few.

This is needed because the neurological effects of injuries, disorders, and diseases are not fully understood. They may affect motor function, strength, limb position sense, and other brain functions including how we process information as well as immediate and delayed memory. Presently, diagnosis and treatments are largely based on subjective measures that use coarse scales. We hope to create a better diagnostic tool to help improve diagnosis, treatment, and therapies for patients.

Lab

LIMB Laboratory using the Kinarm Robot.

Benefits to Participant

Our goal is to increase our understanding of healthy behavior so we can then compare to others who have a disease e.g. Stroke/TIA/MS/Concussion etc.

Location

KGH Connell 4, Kingston, ON

Compensation Info

Compensation is 15$/hour as well as a parking pass for the underground lot.


Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria

Participants must be aged 35+

We are looking for healthy individuals with no neurological disorders and no issues affecting the upper limbs. Please contact the researcher below for more information.


Participant Expectations

You will be seated in the Kinarm robot and then perform a series of tasks similar to a simple video game. While you perform the task, the robot measures your movements and reactions.

Times Available

Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm, some flexibility available. Please email the researcher using the contact researcher button below to set up your appointment.
