Dear Group,

Our team is conducting research on video game design and development for rehabilitation.  We are looking for folks who might be interested in participating in focus groups, product testing, and usability testing.  If you are in the Los Angeles or Southern California area, and would like to participate, please contact us (see IRB approved web posting below).

IRB Study # A-16123i,ii,iii,  15594i,ii,iii 16595i, ii, iii 

PI: Sheryl Flynn PT, PhD

 Description:  The purpose of this research study is to learn more about how to design and develop video games for rehabilitation. The reason for collecting
 this information is to find ways to improve rehabilitation outcomes for specific groups of patients and their families. Information from focus groups (small group discussions about games), usability trials of games, and product testing will be used to develop better video games that can be used for rehabilitation purposes.  Approximately 300 participants will be enrolled in this project.

 disabilities

 The discussion in the focus group will be in English

 Time Commitment:  approximately 2 hours
