New study recruiting at Sargent College, Boston University

The Center for Neurorehabilitation at Sargent College, Boston University invites you to participate in a research study to promote walking in people with Parkinson’s disease. Participants will be given a pedometer to measure the amount of walking done over one month. The pedometer is a small device kept in your pocket or on your waist to measure how many steps you take each day. Participants will also be given a small computer to take home. The computer contains an automated exercise advisor – this advisor appears as an animated cartoon character that talks to you from the computer. With only five minutes of use each day, this program is designed to help you increase your walking.
