A Johns Hopkins research study is looking for men and women 18-30 years of age to test a new device for assessing blood vessel function in the upper arm. Measurements of your blood vessels are made from outside the body, using blood pressure cuffs, fingertip surface probes, and ultrasound. The researchers will also perform a blood test to measure heart disease risk factors and tests to measure your fitness, level of physical activity, and body composition.
Testing is done in one visit. There are no costs to participate. Compensation for participation is provided, and there is free parking.
