PurposeOur team of engineers out of Fresno, California developed the Tremelo device to make shaky hands steady using vibration absorption technology. We need people with essential tremor to help us test our prototypes and provide feedback before proceeding to the final design.
Study Overview – What’s involved?
Review the study Consent Form.Make sure you are familiar with the details of the study, and discuss any questions you might have with a Five Microns team member. You must return the completed Consent Form to the researchers before proceeding.
To confirm that you are a qualified candidate before meeting the researchers, send a video recording of your tremor for review (instructions at bit.ly/recordingyourtremor). The researchers will respond with confirmation on whether or not you are a good candidate. If you are, they will set up an in-person meeting. (If you are not able to make a video recording but wish to see if you qualify, let us know and we’ll work something out.)
Schedule a 60-minute appointment.Depending on your preference, Five Microns will schedule a home visit or will set up a study site that is within a convenient driving distance for you. The site will be a public location, such as a library meeting room.
During the meeting, you will be asked to act out daily activities with and without the Tremelo. The entire session will be video recorded, and you will fill out a self-assessment afterwards. If the researchers would like to modify the device after the first meeting, they will ask to schedule a follow-up 60-minute meeting.
