Healthy adults needed for walking study at Kennedy Krieger Institute

Healthy people age 18–35 are needed to participate in research at the Motion Analysis Lab at Kennedy Krieger Institute, next to the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore campus. The study involves having small sticky markers placed on the body so that a computer can detect movement while a person walks on a treadmill. Volunteers will also wear a mask that detects how they breathe and a heart rate monitor during a variety of walking tasks. The study typically involves a single visit of about three hours.

Volunteers will be asked to take a COVID antigen test upon arrival in the lab. Compensation is $15 per hour of participation.
