WANTED

People who exercise regularly to participate in a research study about smelly t-shirts

 

IF YOU:

  • Exercise regularly (i.e. ~1 hr aerobic exercise at least 4 times per week)
  • Are between the ages of 18-55
  • Have ever noticed your gym clothes can smell after exercise

THEN you may be interested in participating in our study

First a screening session (1h exercise) will be conducted to make sure you have enough odour. If you pass the screening test we will give you t-shirts to exercise in for up to 4 times per week for 10 weeks.  You will wash the t-shirts yourself and then return them to us so a panel of assessors can rate odour intensity.

Trials will begin in October 2016.

The t-shirts will be made from two different types of fabrics and we want to know which one smells the least!


A $5 coffee voucher will be given to all participants for the screening test.  Participants who take part in the full trial will be given $100 in gift cards.
