Study on gym accessibility seeking participants

A research study exploring how to make gyms usable for all people is seeking volunteer participants.

Fallon Mitchell, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Kinesiology, is investigating accessibility and user experience in gym settings.

She is seeking adult participants to complete a series of tasks at the Toldo Lancer Centre while sharing their thoughts aloud. Afterwards, participants are invited to an optional 30-minute interview to further discuss their experiences, accessibility, and inclusion in gyms.

Participation takes approximately one to two hours, and participants will receive a $25 gift card in appreciation. People 18 years or older with all types of abilities are welcome to participate.

This study has received clearance from the Research Ethics Board. Contact Mitchell at mitch11e@uwindsor.ca for more information or to volunteer.
