Researchers at the Human Environmental Physiology Research Unit (HEPRU) at the University of Ottawa are currently seeking volunteers to participate in studies assessing how the body responds to heat at rest and during exercise. We are seeking to understand how different factors such as a person’s sex, age, state of health, fitness, hydration status, acclimatization state and others can affect an individual’s tolerance to heat.
This information will inform new guidelines and heat protection strategies to safeguard health during exposure to heat.
Who are we looking for?
-Adults (18-80 years) with or without chronic health conditions (e.g., Type II diabetes, hypertension)
-All fitness levels
How does participating benefit you?
-Free aerobic fitness assessment and free body composition analysis (valued at $650)
-Advice on the use of exercise to maintain health and manage chronic conditions
-Tips and tricks on how to better cope with hot weather
