Spend Most Days Sitting? Want To Get Active? Walking Study


Spending most days sitting or standing - not moving?  Need to get active, but hard to find the time? Are you interested in using a step counter to help you become more active? Take part in our research study (for people aged 40 or older). Study done by text, e-mail, internet, and telephone. Minimal time requirement.

 

Here is more detail about the study:

 

The Boston Roybal Center for Active Lifestyle Interventions (RALI Boston) and researchers at Brandeis University are looking for individuals aged 40 and above to take part in a research study investigating the use of step counters. The study lasts 5 weeks, plus there is a follow-up questionnaire 1 month later. It involves wearing a small portable step counter (Fitbit - on your wrist or a clip - you choose) to keep track of steps taken every day (for the entire study through to follow-up). You communicate with our research team each day via brief texts, once a week via email for 5 weeks, and occasionally by telephone. It also involves filling out questionnaires online during the study. Those who complete the study will be able to keep the Fitbit and will receive a $25 bonus once they complete the study.
