Staff and students needed for health supplement reminder study
A study looking into ways of reminding people to take their health supplements is being conducted by a PhD student at Western Sydney University.
An avatar- based iPad application that can verbally express reminders along with a portable pill organiser that can emit alarms at scheduled times are being tested as a part of the study.
Researchers are calling on Western Sydney University staff and students aged 20 to 70 years old who are currently taking at least one type of supplement to participate in a three week trial.
The study will involve a face to face interview before and after the trial and a 5-10 minute session per day using a random selection of either the pill box or the avatar.
There will be a baseline pill count before the trial to measure current adherence.
