IRB Protocol Number STU00211930

Grace Hoo ghoo@sralab.org

Objective

Clinical Participants

The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is seeking patients with Parkinson’s disease or Essential Tremor, to study the effect and ability of muscle stimulation to reduce tremor. Exclusion criteria include epilepsy/seizures and incompatibility with MRI or transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). During the study, participants will be stimulated with non-invasive muscle electrostimulation and TMS while seated in a comfortable chair. To measure tremors, sensors will be placed over the wrist, elbow and shoulder and in some visits to the head. In two visits, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will be used to observe the brain.
