Mission Statement

We aim to disseminate not-for-profit academic research on new methodologies for the measurement and promotion of physical activity in daily life. Our current focus is on improving measurement of daily physical activities in seniors using wearable technologies.

Description

We are currently seeking healthy volunteers between the ages of 55-85 to participate in our physical activity study. Would you like to get some exercise, socialize with our friendly staff, and help Northeastern University researchers detect types of physical activities from wearable motion sensors?

We are looking for willing volunteers to participate in two 3-hour sessions scheduled on consecutive days, and wear small sensors in between the two sessions while going about their daily lives. During the sessions volunteers will be asked to wear sensors while being guided through some moderate intensity exercises and activities, and walking around the campus - with plenty of rest breaks! Volunteers will receive $75 in compensation for participating.

Interested in participating? Please contact Diego/Greg @NEUPhysicalActivityStudy@gmail.com or respond to our volunteer posting directly here.
