End date

Our participatory research project will bring together people living with Parkinson’s disease, healthcare providers, artists and engineers to develop immersive technologies that can translate the embodied experience of disability. Our goal is to co-create experience prototypes to directly convey aspects of what it’s like to live with Parkinson’s, in order to increase empathy, improve understanding and provide better treatment for this condition.
