Monitor Evaluation Study
We are looking for healthy adult volunteers (ages 18-60) to evaluate the utility of different physical activity monitors. Participants will wear 7 different monitors (1 on arm, 1 on leg, 1 on hip and 4 bands on the wrists - 2 per side). The goal of the study is to learn how to outputs from the different devices compare over a full 24 hour period. Participation will require a 30 minute visit to determine eligibility and to get the monitors initialized. You will then wear the monitors for the whole next day and return the following day to complete a survey of your activity patterns. The study will provide insights about how the monitors work. Compensation is available. Click here if you are interested in learning more about the study.
Clinical Health Coaching Study
The Clinical Health Coach study involves an evaluation of facilitated health coaching in clinical populations. Participants must be directly referred from their physician. See our WellnessWorks outreach program for details (http://www.wellnessworksisu.org/)
Acute Exercise in Depression - COMING SOON!
Dr. Meyer's research laboratory will be recruiting adults suffering from depression to participate in a study evaluating the effects of a single session of moderate intensity exercise on a range of psychological, cognitive and biological outcomes through completion of questionnaires, cognitive tasks and provision of blood samples. Participants will also use wearable devices to measure their physical activity behaviors over the course of 7 or more days. Participation will require 3 visits to the lab lasting around 9 hours total of time in the laboratory. The study will help us understand how exercise influences mood and other important aspects of depression and detail the time-course of this effect of exercise. Study contact and recruitment information will be available when enrollment begins (late fall - early spring).
