Are you 65 years or older and interested in knowing more about your mobility level? Join us at Andrew & Marjorie McCain Human Performance Laboratory, University of New Brunswick, as we use wearable technology to examine the changes in movement of older adults during daily living for better prediction of health care transitions.

Mobility is considered an important indicator of quality of life, and yet we know little about mobility in older Canadians. Our research aims to increase our understanding of mobility impairments in older adults through wearable sensors. The information generated from this study may bring great interest and benefits to the community, private care centers, hospitals, and provincial and federal governments in Canada.

If you are aged 65 years or older, able to walk independently, and can wear a sensor around your waist for a week, you are eligible to participate in
this study. Interested participants should contact the Human Performance Lab at 453-4922 or 453-4912 or email mobilitystudy2018@gmail.com 

This study is on file with the UNB Research Ethics Board (REB 2017-029)
