Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I take part if I don’t experience any problems with drooling?

    We would like to ask participants to consider the potential benefits and features they would like from a wearable device designed for people with Parkinson’s disease. We are also interested in hearing any additional ideas they may have for utilising the scheduling cueing and vibration capabilities of the device. In addition, we would like to gather feedback on the acceptability and usability of the device as both a piece of technology and an item of clothing. We would also appreciate general feedback on the mobile application and the process of setting up the device, including any thoughts on reflecting on their symptoms or completing form data. If you don’t experience problems with drooling, we would like you to sign up to the ‘free living’ aspect of the study.

    In the future, we hope to expand the capabilities of the devices to support new scientific studies or features requested by people with Parkinson’s disease. These devices have been designed to be reprogrammable for alternative uses beyond cueing for drooling. However, in order to achieve this, it is important that we design the band (hardware and onscreen content) and the mobile apps to be functional and user-friendly for people with Parkinson’s disease. Therefore, our current focus is on ensuring that the devices meet these needs.

  • How does Cue Band work?

    Cue Band has been designed to periodically deliver small and discrete vibrations to the wearer as a prompt to swallow any saliva in their mouth. The timing, duration and intensity of the vibrations can be configured through the Cue Band smartphone app – allowing complete personalisation of the prompts to suit an individual’s preferences and needs.

    Using the Cue Band smartphone app, it is possible to create a weekly schedule of cueing events such that the band will provide the cueing prompts without the need for manual activation. For example, you may experience higher levels of drooling in the evening and wish to receive cueing prompts from the device every day at 7pm for hour. It is possible to schedule this using the Cue Band app and have the device automatically start prompting at 7pm each day.

    If you don’t have your Cue Band device with you (or you are participating in our trial and currently receiving prompts via the smartphone) then you can change the settings within the Cue Band app to request prompting via the Phone. This will work the same as cueing on the Cue Band device, except it will be your phone that starts vibrating when you are being prompted. For discretion you may choose to leave your smartphone in your pocket, you should feel the vibrations through your clothing. If not, you can change the vibration pattern to make this more noticeable.
