Hemiparesis Research Study Seeking Participants

Hemiparesis Study Seeking ParticipantsCHASA is assisting Daniel McDonald, a graduate student in the Masters in Management Information Systems program at the University of Omaha in locating participants for a research study.  You are being asked to be in this study because you either have a child with hemiparesis or you yourself have hemiparesis.

The purpose of this study is to bring awareness to the population of children with hemiparesis who are under-served by current technology design. It will contribute to hardware design principles for building technological devices by suggesting potential hardware design principles that will make better devices for children with hemiparesis. The research questions of this research study are as follows:

1. What are the challenges that children with hemiparesis have using the hardware interfaces of technology?

2. How do current human computer interaction hardware design principles address input and output accessibility challenges of children with hemiparesis?

The survey is located online at:  https://qtrial.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9oY4JVqKXbfZmm1
