Muscle and tendon properties in stroke (research)

NeuRA, Barker St, Randwick, NSW, 2031

Researchers at Neuroscience Research Australia are seeking volunteers to participate in a study that investigates causes of muscle contracture (stiffening of muscles) after stroke. People are eligible to participate in the study if they have had a stroke and have an ankle that has become stiffer since the stroke.

Participants will have an ultrasound scan and an MRI scan. Ultrasound and MRI scans are safe, painless procedures.

The scans will be taken in a single session of testing that will take place at NeuRA (at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick, NSW). The testing session lasts approximately two hours. Participants will be given $50 and will be reimbursed for any transportation or parking expenses (including taxi fares).
