We have been approached by Acumen Fieldwork who are recruiting participants to take part in two studies. Details of these studies are as follows:

Research study now recruiting adult and paediatric patients who have a DBS implant for primary dystonia

We are looking to speak with adults and adolescents regarding Deep Brain Stimulation and pain management. We are going to be running 2 studies:

Study 1: Wireless Rechargeable Neurostimulators – Between Monday 17th & Thursday 20th June

This study for a new recharger, which will involve people currently implanted with rechargeable neurostimulators. During this study you will be asked to provide feedback on a new recharger.

The recharger is intended for people who are currently implanted with neurostimulators for deep brain stimulation and pain management.

Study 2: Patient Programmers for Neurostimulators – Between Wednesday 26th & Friday 28th June

This study is for a patient programmer, which will involve people currently or previously implanted with neurostimulators. 

During the session, [you / you and your child] will be asked to interact with a patient programmer for a Neurostimulator.
The patient programmer will not actually be connected to any Neurostimulator and will not have any effect on [your / your child’s] therapy.

The study will take part in two locations:

Study length: 2 hours, Location: Manchester (M1)

Study length: 2 hours, Location: Strand (WC2R, London)

Incentive: £175 per study (you are able to take part in both studies)
