Project Goals

The goal of the Rescue project is to improve mobility for people with Parkinson's disease. To achieve this, the project is investigating a rehabilitation programme based around the concept of cueing.

Specifically, in the first year of the Rescue project (2002-2003), researchers will be undertaking experiments and interviews to determine the optimal means of delivering cues, and the best strategy for integrating cues into a rehabilitation programme. The project will also be testing a 'cueing' device that people can use in everyday life. Finally, in the second and third years of the project (2003-2005), the long term clinical benefits of the programme will be investigated in a randomised control involving a total 150 patients with Parkinson’s disease across the three centres.
