Exoskeleton research focus groups

Participants are needed for feedback on a new wearable robotic exoskeleton which could help people with paralysis and weakness in their arms.

Do you have:

  • A weak upper arm or paresis (muscular weakness) / paralysis in one or both arms
  • A neurological condition

And are you:

  • Able to attend focus groups at The Brain Charity
  • Prepared to give your views on the design of a new robotic orthosis (exoskeleton)?

Dr Heba Lakany, a researcher at the University of Liverpool, has developed a working prototype for arm rehabilitation and assistance. It will be a device people can take home to support their recovery, empowering them to take control of their own rehabilitation.

Our clients are being invited to help co-design and improve their initial design to make sure it is fit for purpose. The researchers want to hear your views on how the design can be made better to support independence and quality of life.

Focus group sessions will take place monthly on Thursdays from 12pm until 1pm and are running between April and August.

Refreshments will be provided and those who attend all four sessions will receive a free £20 Love2Shop voucher in return for their participation.

To take part, please click the sign-up button today. Someone will be in touch to complete your registration.
