Knowme Networks Parent Permission/Youth Assent Form
This study is about developing mobile sensors that can measure physical
activity, sleep, heart rate, and other physical and emotional reactions. The
sensors need to be strong enough, comfortable enough and easy to use so
that children would enjoy wearing and using them.
The purpose of this study is to measure physical activity with the use of mobile
devices. We hope to develop new tools that may be helpful in preventing and
treating adolescent childhood obesity. You are invited as a possible participant
because you are Latino and/or African American between 12 and 17 years old.
A total of 50 Hispanic and African American youth will be asked to participate
in this study.
