"People Care" is important to us and your volunteerism can help us treat and help people like you now and in the future.

 


 

SENIOR VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The senior population is a fast growing population (Canadian Institute for Health Information: https://www.cihi.ca/en/seniors-population-growth) yet old stigmas, expectations, and wives' tales still restrict the population and their families from seeking care, help, or information.

HEALTHY SENIORS NEEDED (60 years and older) 

Electrovestibulography (EVestG)

EVestG technology has been applied towards diagnosis of and separation of Parkinson disease (PD) / Schizophrenia / Depression (Unipolar vrs Bipolar) / Meniere's Disease / Controls [6-19]. Sensitivities and specificities so far have been typically above 85%.

EVestG is used as an objective technique for analyzing brain signals to detect neurological and mood disorders compared to healthy brain signals.  

We need healthy volunteers, 60 year of age or older, to examine the accuracy of results.
