Protocol: STUDY00003752
Full Title
Pilot study to examine the feasibility of using accelerometers to identify onset of fatigue during physical exertion
Description
This study enrolls healthy adults.The purpose of this study is to learn if body monitors can identify when fatigue begins when doing movements.

For the first visit, you will give written consent and be screened for potential exclusions. If all inclusion criteria are met, you will complete a treadmill test. For visits 2 & 3, one will occur in a temperate condition and the other in a hot condition. You will wear monitoring equipment. For two hours, subjects will do various exercises to mimic industrial work in the environmental chamber. You will also complete a short test on a tablet. Study takes place at UB's South Campus.
