Hayley Teasdale from the University of Canberra took home the runners-up prize at FameLab Australia 2019 for her talk on how a ball can help rehabilitate suffers of Parkinson’s disease.


An estimated 10 million people world wide suffer from Parkinson’s disease. Many who suffer from the disease report losing their confidence in their own home due to a lack of balance. Hayley’s research brings hope, in the form of a ball, for these sufferers.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
