Research into Parkinson’s continues to be on the rise in Australia and internationally.

Taking part in a research project may result in a better understanding of , or better treatment or a potential cure for Parkinson’s.  In some cases, research projects may provide access to new interventions before they are widely available.

Below are current research projects looking for participants

 


 Parkinson’s stepping study

Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) and The University of New South Wales are looking for volunteers to take part in the Parkinson’s stepping study.

The aim is to improve voluntary and reactive stepping in people with Parkinson’s , all whilst playing enjoyable games in your own home and attending 3 slips and trips training sessions in NeuRA’s lab (Sydney).

It is hoped the stepping training program done at home and at NeuRA will result in reducing fall risk in people living with Parkinson’s.

Who can be part of this research study?

  • Diagnosed with Parkinson’s
  • Living in metropolitan Sydney
  • Willing to commit to the study for 12 weeks
