Hello Everyone,
I am a public health & autism researcher at Indiana University Bloomington who is seeking research volunteers for a study examining the efficacy of gamified physical activity-promoting mobile apps on increasing physical activity and reducing anxiety among adults with autism spectrum diagnoses (ASD) (IRB approved 1807483245).

* You may be eligible to participate if you
(1) have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder by a medical professional,
(2) have been diagnosed with a co-occurring anxiety disorder or self-identified as having anxiety symptoms,
(3) are aged between 18 and 60 years,
(4) have regular access to a smartphone (Android phones & iPhones 6 or above/newer models),
(5) are able to ambulate without an assistive device (ex: wheelchair, crutches, etc.), and
(6) are living in the United States and have no move out plan for the next 3 months.

* If you participate in this study, you will be asked to
(1) wear a motion sensor to measure physical activity for 7 days over 3 different data collection periods; in total 15~21 days (study materials will be mailed to your home),
(2) complete anxiety and physical activity surveys.
(3) install and utilize a physical activity-promoting mobile app and a smartphone usage analysis app, and
(4) return the study materials to the research team by the end of the study participation.

* You will receive a gift card valued at $100 after completing a 2-month study participation.

Best wishes with the study, but as another mod has already stated, please can you get permission from the Admin / developer before proceeding. For the reasons of safeguarding our members it's against the rules to post survey details without clearance from him. On receipt of such proof it can proceed. Also, please don't flood all the forums with the same request. Thanks.
