Austin Regional Clinic Physicians constantly try to improve the care given to you and to all our patients. We are dedicated to offering unique options for our patients and helping them reach ideal health goals. Part of this dedication involves making clinical research available. Clinical research makes it possible to discover the benefits, risks, and safety of both commercially-available and investigational medications.
Research standards are very strict to help make studies as safe as possible. Each study we conduct has already been reviewed by teams of government and research experts to minimize any study risks. Austin Regional Clinic has decided to be involved in this research study because we think it can potentially benefit our patients.
About the Adult Fibromyalgia Device clinical study:
Over 5 million Americans are affected by fibromyalgia - a condition characterized by widespread pain, aching and tenderness in all parts of the body. In addition, people with fibromyalgia often awaken tired and struggle with fatigue, even after a full night's sleep.
Although medications are available, they do not work for everyone and can sometimes cause unwanted side effects. A new, no cost research study of a smart phone app may be able to help.
This study is for an investigational smart phone app, intended to reduce fibromyalgia symptoms and help people manage their fibromyalgia more effectively. It does not involve any drugs or medications.
If you qualify and choose to join the study you will receive:
- The investigational smart phone app at no cost
- Compensation for using the app over a 12-week period
- The opportunity to help advance fibromyalgia research
To be eligible for the PROSPER study you must:
- Be living in the United States
- Be between 22 to 75 years of age
- Have a fibromyalgia diagnosis
- Own and use a smartphone with an operating system of version 8 or newer for Android or version 12 or newer for iOS
- Have the ability to commit to using the smartphone-based therapy for up to 15-20 minutes a day
- Have the ability to read and understand English
