Physical Activity and Health Lab Seeks Volunteers for Study on Activity Monitors

June 23, 2022

The Physical Activity and Health Lab is seeking healthy adults, 18 to 65 years old, to participate in a study to improve algorithms in wearable activity devices. Participants will be asked to wear various activity monitors while completing activities in the laboratory and during their everyday routine for up to seven days. Total time commitment during the first laboratory visit is about two hours.

Participants will be compensated up to $40 in Amazon gift cards as a token of our appreciation for participating and, if interested, may receive results from our study related to resting metabolism, cardiorespiratory fitness or behavioral activity patterns.

If interested, please email Rob Marcotte (rmarcotte@umass.edu) or follow this link for further details.
