Study seeking volunteers for research into hypertension treatment

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among Canadians, says Mark Badrov. He hopes to help do something about it.

A kinesiology student in the second year of his master’s program, Badrov is seeking volunteer subjects for his study into how an isometric hand grip device, which users squeeze over short but sustained intervals, helps to lower blood pressure.

“It’s a novel, simple, time-efficient method of treatment, but we’re still trying to understand why it works,” he says.
