Wearable Sensor Reliability Study - Participant Recruitment
We are looking for healthy participants aged 19 and older who are free of lower-extremity musculoskeletal injuries in the past 3 months to participate in a research study.
The goal of this study is to investigate the reliability of newly developed wearable sensors. In this study, you will be asked to complete several walking, running, and jumping trials to help us test some new wearable devices. Participation will require you to attend a baseline (testing-1), 1-week (testing-2) and 3-month session (tesing-3). The final decision about participation is yours and you can withdraw at any time.
Each session will take no longer than 2 hours.
If you are interested in participating, you can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Supine-to-stand versus Supine-to-Lower Body Negative Pressure (LBNP), Cardiovascular/Musculoskeletal Baroreflex Responses (#30001262)
We are looking for healthy, able-bodied participants aged 19-35 years to come to the Aerospace Physiology Laboratory (APL) to undergo supine-to-stand and supine-to-lower body negative pressure (LBNP) testing protocols.
Your participation in this study will involve…
- 1 lab visit (no longer than 1 hour) at SFU’s APL where you will be lying on your back and standing on a force platform.
- 1 lab visit (no longer than 1 hour) at SFU’s APL where you will be lying on your back inside a LBNP chamber from below the hips.
Both visits will be measuring heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle activity.
Your contribution helps us improve our understanding if LBNP accurately mimics heart and muscle responses that are seen with quiet standing after laying down.
For more information, please contact APL via email or telephone:
