Frequently Asked Questions
Does this research have an age cutoff for participants?
"This clinical trial is only open to patients between 18 and 90 years old. Alternatively, there are 38 trials for individuals below the age of majority and 1006 studies available for those over 65." - Anonymous Online Contributor
Do I meet the criteria to partake in this medical experiment?
"This experiment requires 12 individuals who have suffered a stroke, aged 18 to 90. Most importantly, they must possess paresis limited to one side of their body and moderate-severe motor impairment in their upper extremity (Fugl-Meyer score between 10 - 40)." - Anonymous Online Contributor
