PROXIMITY CLINICAL

Friday 8 December, 2017

A clinical application of Proximity Interactive to help with the rehabilitation of people with neurological damage, developed with Susan Hillier – a neuroscience and rehabilitation researcher from University of South Australia was tested in June/July 2014 at Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre.

In 2017, Susan Hillier and UniSA are seeking funds through crowdfunding to be able to expand on this research and help more stroke survivors.

Clinical trials are expensive but crucial to improving outcomes. Funds raised through this appeal will:

  • Promote the trial to stroke survivors and recruit more participants;
  • Hire therapists to conduct participant sessions, control sessions, and assessments;
  • Transport support for stroke participants to attend each session and assessment.

The University of South Australia has committed to boosting all funds raised by an extra 20% – but only if the target is reached.
