ask_againWhen we told you about this project last year, you decided not to participate at that time. We wanted to offer you the opportunity to hear about the project again, in case something has changed. If you decide not to participate this time, we promise we will not contact you about this project ever again! ask again if not consent last time
consent1Now that you have read about what is required for the 7-day project, would you like to be eligible to participate? If you say yes, you may be randomly selected to participate in the coming months. In that case, we will notify you by email. At that time, you can still say yes or no, or ask to be rescheduled. ask consent
consent2Thank you for your willingness to consider participating in our study! Here are some answers to frequently asked questions.

How does it work? If you decide to join this study and are selected to participate in one of the 7-day intensive projects, we will contact you by email. We will verify your address and check to make sure you are able to participate during the week that we have selected. If you are able to participate, we will send you a package that includes the GENEActiv watch, and a guide that will explain in detail what to do for the week, and provide a place to track your participation.

What exactly does the activity tracker do? The device is an “accelerometer” which is about the size of a wristwatch. It measures movement, and privately stores that information in the device itself. It does not track your location, and it does not transmit anything to us or anyone else. When you send the device back to us, we will be able to read the information from it. If you were to lose the device or it was stolen, there is nothing that would connect the information recorded in the device to you personally. It is completely safe, and most users find that it is comfortable to wear.

The smartphone app: Android users download the app from Google Play Store. IPhone users download the app from the Apple store. Once you log in, the app will ask you for a time window when it is okay to beep or buzz to notify you. Each time it beeps, you will answer a series of short questions in the app. You will be “beeped” at random times, six times each day. You will have about eight minutes to respond to the beep to start answering the questions. If you don’t respond, or if you can’t connect, the app will beep once more to remind you during the eight minutes. You can silence the beeps if necessary and we of course do not want you to respond if doing so will jeopardize you in any way, e.g. while driving.

Time Commitment: Responding to the prompts takes about 2 minutes per prompt, so answering them may take up to 18 minutes per day. The End of Day surveys take about 7 minutes per day. Twice a week you will fill out an additional 15 minute survey.

If you have any other questions about the study before you decide, you can give us a call at 855-872-8673.

Having read more about it, are you interested in participating in this project? If you say yes, you may be randomly selected to participate in a 7-day study sometime in the near future. If you are selected, we will notify you by email. You can still say yes or no at that time.
