Subjects Needed for Hand Dystonia Research
The Program of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science at the University of Minnesota is currently conducting a research study titled: Determining the efficacy of synergistic intervention in focal hand dystonia with rTMS and sensorimotor retraining. The purpose of the study is to understand the responses to two different types of intervention combined with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) with a goal of improving the hand function in people with focal dystonia or writer's cramp. rTMS is a non-invasive, safe technology that can modify the excitability in the brain.
• Greater than 18 years of age
• Symptoms of focal hand dystonia or writer's cramp
• No history of seizure or other neurologic disorder
• The study requires participation in two sessions separated
by at least 1 month. Each session will consist of 10 visits
lasting between 1-2 hours.
• At the completion of the study you will be paid $400.
