Healthy 50 - 60 yr olds Needed for Motor Movement Study - Earn $10

We are looking for healthy adults from 50 - 60 years of age to participate in a research study on the effects of different surfaces and shapes in gripping small heavy objects. The study will be conducted at Texas Tech in the Mechanical Engineering building - ME 142 (Human Centric Research and Design Lab). In the study, participants will sit and move simple metal objects across a partition. Participants must be right-handed writers and must NOT suffer from motor movement impairments such as stroke, visual impairment (other than glasses), fibromyalgia, and cerebral palsy. The session will take no longer than 1 hour. Research participation is completely confidential. Experiments have already begun. You will receive $10 cash compensation.

For more information or if you are interested in participating, please contact Jazmin Cruz at 

This study has been approved by the Human Research Protection Program at Texas Tech University.
