GET FIT prostate Remote logos

A research study for men with prostate cancer to learn how wearable technology can predict falls

We are seeking participants to test a wearable sensor worn on the foot (“SmartSox”) that measures gait and balance. The purpose of the study is to learn whether SmartSox can predict a man’s chance of falling after treatment for prostate cancer.

Who can join?

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and are either currently on hormone therapy or have received hormone therapy in the past, you may be able to join this study.

What is involved?

As a participant in GET FIT Prostate – Remote Mobility Assessment, you will be asked to:

  • Attend one study visit at OHSU to measure your body composition and mobility
  • Answer surveys about your health and well-being
  • Wear SmartSox at home for up to 7 days

You will receive $25 for your participation. We will also give you your body composition and mobility results.

If you are interested in participating, call (503)-494-4361 or email exercise@ohsu.edu.
