Do you or someone you know, have agoraphobia? We are currently looking for 500 volunteers who suffer from this condition to take part in a clinical trial with the University of Roehampton in London.
The trial consists in using our new app, Agoraphobia Free and the aim to test its efficacy in treating the problem. The app uses Computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which has been shown to be helpful already. In addition we use a few novel techniques that have not been tested yet and that is the purpose of the trial. We cannot reveal what they are exactly as that would invalidate the trial.
The trial involves going through the app and doing all the exercises it requires. It is expected most people will take around 5-6 weeks to complete the treatment but it can be done at whatever pace the person completing it finds best. The data will be analysed by researchers at University of Roehampton and the Institute of Psychiatry at Kings College London. The trial has received ethical approval from University of Roehampton.
To get involved visit our agoraphobia free page and simply sign up. We will be in touch with the information sheet and consent form once we have reached 500 volunteers. You will not have agreed to participate until you sign the consent form and you can withdraw from the trial at any point without giving a reason. Participants will receive early access to the app which will be free to them.
