urgent - £50 Rewards For People To Take Part In Wheelchair Trials

 
The research is assessing in detail how wheelchair users manage to transfer across small steps and gaps between a platform and a train.
We'll be carrying this research out in a specialist research centre in Stevenage, Hertfordshire between 15 September and 2 October 2017.
The trials will be using a custom-built test rig to simulate a train and platform.
This is a big ask!
Due to the nature of the research, we need participants to attend 6 half day design workshops.
We're offering £50 for each half day trial session and will cover all travel expenses. Therefore, the total for taking part in his project will be £300 plus travel expenses.
We're looking for people who use the following types of wheelchairs:
·         Powered Wheelchairs

·         Self-propelled Wheelchair with small front casters (2-4 inches)

·         Self-propelled Wheelchair with large front casters (5-8 inches)

·         Session 1: 15th September AM /PM  OR  19th September AM

·         Session 2: 19th September PM  OR  20th September AM/PM
