Participants needed: do you suffer from dizziness?

A team of researchers from the University of Southampton are looking for participants to take part in research concerning the management of dizziness. Dr MC Portillo, and her team, have been promoting the Balance Retraining LIFEGUIDE online tool through different organisations; including Hearing Link. You can access the Balance Retraining LIFEGUIDE Tool here:

Dr Portillo would now like to talk to two groups of people.

  • People who have used the Balance Retraining LIFEGUIDE tool. The team would like to know why you chose to use the tool, and a little about your experiences.
  • People who decided not to use the Balance Retraining LIFEGUIDE tool. The research team would like to know more about your reasons for not using the tool, as these are valuable insights too.

This research will involve a short group interview, to be held at the University of Southampton (Highfield Campus) at a time most convenient for everyone. A small monetary voucher will be given to participants to thank them for their time, and refreshments will be provided and costs for travelling will be reimbursed.

If you would like to know more about the research, and think you may want to take part please contact Dr Portillo by either telephone or email.

Telephone: 07874047513


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with the team.
