Pilot user testing has been carried out on 13 volunteers with Parkinson’s Disease. Participants carried out 12 selected tasks with M-co prototype off and repeated the tasks with the prototype activated.
All of the participants have shown improvement. The improvement ranged from 4.96% up to 32.38% with an overall average of 16.63%. 62.5% of the participants who have shown over 14% improvement have given positive self-assessment. Reporting tasks carried out with the intervention felt more easy, relaxed, controlled and co-ordinated.
