Hi all, I'm a clinical research coordinator with the University of Rochester. The UR Department of Computer Science is developing a new tool in collaboration with the department of Neurology to help individuals with Parkinson's disease and their care providers monitor symptoms of PD. We are currently in need of participants (with and without PD) to try out the tool and provide feedback.

The study involves you opening the tool in Google Chrome, agreeing to the E-consent form, and turning on your computer's webcam and microphone. The tool will then lead you through a series of recorded tasks. These tasks range from reading a short sentence to tapping your fingers together in view of the camera. Altogether, participation should take about 15 minutes. After the tasks are complete, you will be asked to fill out a short demographic survey including your email address, where we will send a $50 Amazon gift card as compensation for your time and effort. To access the study and read more about the University of Rochester’s research into Parkinson’s disease, please go to this link. For any questions regarding the study, please email parktoolhelp@gmail.com. Thank you for participating!

taylymy, welcome to Healing Well. Thank you for following the rules and receiving Peter's permission to promote your study. It appears this is a one-time study - not on-going. Is that correct?

I will go to the link with additional questions. Thanks for your interest in Parkinson's.

Hi lizzy4451,

You are correct--it is a one-time, approximately 15 minute long study. Thanks for letting us recruit from the forum!

Best,
