Call for Participants for Universal Design in Fitness Facility/Equipment Research
Do you work in a recreational fitness facility?
Have you been in your current job for at least 2 years?
If the answer to any of these question is yes, we invite you to take part in a voluntary confidential study interview investigating barriers and facilitators to designing recreational fitness facility space and programing applying universal design principles. If you are interested in taking part in this research or finding out more about the project, please contact Beth Barstow at 205-934-7321 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What you will do?
You will be asked to take part in one interview, lasting about 1 hour. The interview will be via computer, telephone or in person, confidential and scheduled at your convenience. You will be asked about your perceptions and experiences of barriers and facilitators to designing recreational fitness facility space and programming applying universal design principles.
Why is this research important?
Use of fitness facilities in the U.S. is rising. Despite the documented benefits of exercise engagement and availability of facilities, studies have cited limited accessibility to people with physical disabilities. To date, no published research is available describing the barriers and facilitators encountered in the design and application of universal design principles to recreational fitness facility programming and space.
What’s in it for me?
The confidential information gathered will be used to recommend potential system-wide changes for universal design principles
What’s the compensation for my time?
You will be given a $20 gift card for your time
What should I do if I am interested in participating?
