Full Title
Detecting ethanol intoxication and impairment using wearable biosensors
The University at Buffalo (UB) Department of Emergency Medicine is conducting a study for volunteers that have been accepted to participate in police academy wet lab training sessions. The goal of the study is to determine if a wearable watch can detect if the wearer is intoxicated and impaired from drinking alcohol. Based on the results from the study, researchers may be able to develop a new way for people to recognize when they are impaired by alcohol.

During a study visit, participants will complete surveys, wear the watch, and complete sobriety tests. Participants will receive a $25 Tim Hortons gift card for completing all study requirements.
