Research Opportunity: New No-Touch Sensors Validation Testing on Darker Skin Tones
Healthy volunteers are invited to schedule a test session of a new ‘contactless sensing system’ that is being developed to take vital sign readings (like your heart rate and oxygen saturation) without needing to come into contact with your skin. This system instead uses a camera to collect readings from a distance. At this early stage of development, we are testing the new system for accuracy, reliability and usability on medium to dark skin tones.
This study involves attending a one hour in-person test session at the VGH Research Pavilion. Sessions are available until mid-March. For more information, or to book a session, sign up here: REACH BC.
Please share this opportunity with others who may be interested!
Thank you for your interest in getting involved with Digital Emergency Medicine
Digital Emergency Medicine takes pride in being a community-driven and inclusive organization. We have various student and volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. Through our research projects, and other activities such as educational events, we are able to engage several students each year.
If you are eligible and applying for a student program within UBC (such as the UBC Work Study Program, or Summer Student Research Program), if you are interested in a practicum placement, or interested in getting other practical experience related to your schooling or career we would love to hear from you.
If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer, please fill out our application form. We have two intake periods during the year – January/February (for the summer term) and June/July (for opportunities beginning in the fall). However, during the year, there may be other opportunities outside of these intake times, so please feel free to fill out our application survey at any time, check back to our website frequently, or ask to be part of our mailing list.
We look forward to hearing from you!
