Upper limb rehabilitation aid development – opinions needed

I am a Product Designer working as part of Loughborough University’s Graduate Commercialisation hub, The Studio. I am developing an upper limb rehabilitation device, Aulm, which supports progressive physiotherapy for people recovering after a stroke. Aulm encourages the gross movement of the patient’s arm and shoulder, enabling them to carry out rehabilitation exercises at home – without professional supervision.

The research will involve completing an online survey related to:
• About you – your age, gender, how long ago the stroke occurred
• Rehabilitation sessions you have completed and any rehabilitation aids you have used
• Your opinion of doing rehabilitation at home
• Your opinion on future rehabilitation aids and what you would want from them

The results of this research will be used to inform the future development of Aulm, and will allow us to understand the main areas that are most important for stroke survivors when using rehabilitation aids.

I am looking for people who are 18 years old or above who have experienced weakness or impairment in their arm as a result of a stroke.

If this is something you would be interested in, please visit https://goo.gl/forms/1jUA8uGaGFI6vyb02 to complete the questionnaire.

For further information, if you have any questions, or if you would prefer to complete a paper version of the questionnaire, please contact:
