Researchers at Towson University are conducting a study of computer password behaviors among users who have difficulty using their hands and arms (e.g., individuals with carpal tunnel syndrome, high level spinal cord injuries, etc.). Volunteers are needed to take a short 5-10 minute online survey.
The survey is completely confidential and anonymous. If you would like to participate, please visit the URL below. Thank you.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Carpal Tunnel Syndrome||Behavioral: password usage|
Two researchers from the Department of Computer & Information Sciences at Towson University are seeking individuals who have difficulty using their hands and arms (e.g., as result of carpal tunnel syndrome, high level spinal cord injuries, etc.) to participate in a survey. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and all responses will remain completely confidential and anonymous.
The purpose of the survey is to gain insight into the computing behaviors of individuals with upper-body motor impairments. We expect that the results will help researchers and system developers create more effective access control techniques to meet the special needs of this user population. The results should also assist employers in providing improved technical and procedural support to computer users that have difficulties using standard input devices.
