Searson Lab seeks participants for exercise study

The Searson Lab seeks to develop a wearable sensor that can measure the concentration of chloride ions in sweat and could be used for diagnosis and clinical management of individuals with cystic fibrosis.

The Searson Lab group seeks healthy individuals, male and female, between 18 and 50 years old who work out at least twice a week. Participants will be asked to exercise on a stationary bike at a fixed level of effort for up to 85 minutes while wearing one or more sensors, along with a conventional wearable fitness sensor to measure physiological parameters such as heart rate. Each test will consist of 85 minutes of exercise, but the full test takes 2.5 hours. At least one visit will be required of each participant. Participants completing multiple visits will be restricted to a maximum of one test per day. Participants will receive a $20 Amazon gift card upon completion of the test.

The principal investigator is Peter Searson with the Institute for NanoBioTechnology, located at 100 Croft Hall, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218.
