Research volunteers required – exercise in the heat study

Volunteers are sought for an exercise in the heat study looking to provide cooling to soldiers wearing body armour.PastedGraphic-2

Volunteers, male and female, aged up to 39 years old, are required for four mornings or four afternoons over a two-week period from Tuesday 8 September onwards. During the study volunteers will undertake a moderate stepping exercise in desert-like conditions for up to an hour each day.

In recognition of your time in undertaking the study procedures, a reimbursement of £40 will be offered. Please contact Dr Jim House for further details (, 023 9284 5148).

The ethical approval code is SFEC 2014-042b  (this is a repeat of a study from last year, so gives the approval code from 2014, which was re-approved in July, hence the “b” coding).
