Brunel Uni exercise experiment wants volunteers.

An email from Brunel Uni, looking for Guinea Pigs. If you’re interested…. email addresses at the bottom.

I hope this email finds you well. I am reaching out on behalf of our research team at Brunel University London.

We are currently conducting a laboratory experiment aimed at investigating the effects of localised heating of the upper leg muscle on force production and fatiguability and we are currently recruiting participants for our study. We are specifically looking to recruit healthy older adults who maintain good physical activity levels.

Here’s a brief overview of our research project:

Objective: To assess the impact of thigh heating on upper leg muscle force production in healthy older adults (aged 55 – 80 years).
Methodology: Participants will undergo one experimental testing session lasting around 3 hours. During this time, the participant will sit on a machine called an isokinetic dynamometer. This machine accurately measures muscle force production during kicking actions. During the protocol one leg will be heated using a water-perfused garment, whilst the other remains cool. We will then measure muscle force production in both legs every 30 min to compare the effects of heating.
Location: The research session will take place within the Division of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences at Brunel University London in Uxbridge (UB8 3PH)
Compensation: Following completion of the experimental protocol, participants will receive a £25.00 gift voucher

If you believe that members of your club may be interested in taking part or would like further information, could you please forward these details on to them. We can be contacted directly at and/or

Thank you very much for considering our request.

Best regards,
