We are recruiting again from September 2023 for the updated user study!

The University of Lincoln is seeking participants for a study to evaluate a novel technology (a mobile application) that helps stroke survivors to monitor their health and self-manage their treatment.

This study is part of a wider programme called CONSULT (Collaborative mObile decisioN Support for managing mULtiple morbidiTies) which is a 5-year research project, funded by the EPSRC, aiming to design a novel technology that harnesses the power of artificial intelligence, sensors, and mobile devices to support patient decision making, and thus actively engages patients in managing their health.

Using this mobile application, we hope that people will benefit by having better information about their health as an individual. This will help them, and their GPs, make better decisions about health and about which treatments to choose.

We are currently at the stage where we have designed version 1.0 of the mobile application and we would like to test it with users in order to find out how easy it is for them to use and what further changes need to be made, if any, in order to improve its design and make it more relevant to their needs. Your input in this project is valuable and it will help us design novel technology for stroke survivors to self-manage their health better and safely.

The study is looking for participants who meet the following criteria:

  • You are over 18 years old.
  • You live in England or elsewhere in the UK.
  • You are a user of an iPhone or Android mobile device.
  • You do NOT have implanted defibrillators or pacemakers.
  • You do NOT suffer from epileptic seizures.
  • You are NOT pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You have opted in for sharing your health information for research purposes.
  • You are a stroke survivor. (No restrictions apply in terms of type of stroke, years since stroke, type of underlying risk factors or co-morbidities to take part in the study.)
