Call for Research Study Participants

Are physical activity monitors accurate in people with Parkinson’s disease?

Researchers at the University of Queensland are seeking volunteers to participate in research investigating the accuracy of commercially-available physical activity monitoring devices (e.g. FitBit, Garmin Vivosmart) in people with Parkinson’s disease. These devices may be useful to help people with Parkinson’s disease to be more active if they are found to be accurate. This study is open to people who have Parkinson’s disease, who are able to walk without physical help from another person. In order to participate, you will be asked to attend one 2 hour assessment session with a physiotherapist at the University of Queensland (St Lucia Campus).
