We are seeking participants 18 – 49 years of age with Android smartphones.
Subjects must be interested in increasing physical activity.
To participate in this study, you must complete a telephone screening and, if eligible, schedule a lab visit to enroll. In that lab visit you will complete a questionnaire on the computer, learn how to install an application on your smartphone. The study will last for 8 weeks and you will complete a brief survey at the end of each week over the study period. Each survey will take no longer than 2-3 minutes. In the final (second) lab visit, you will also complete a brief questionnaire to assess your experience with the Heartphone Splash app and the study procedures.
A gift card will be offered in a raffle for completing this study. You will be eligible to be in the raffle if you attend the weekly lab visit, complete all questionnaires, and use the app continuously during the study period. You will be also be offered a summary of data from the activity monitor.
If you are interested in participating, for more information on the project, including how to participate, please contact the researchers at 814-865-7935 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
