Participants sought for a research study Print

We are looking for volunteers 18 to 50 years old to participate in a research study. The study will require a laboratory visit of approximately 1-1.5 hours long in which you will be wearing a sensor system and performing transitions between most common activities of everyday living (sitting, standing, and walking).


This study offers a $20 remuneration for the participants. For detailed information, please contact Dr. Edward Sazonov by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we will provide more information about the study. We must exclude you form the study if you have any current trauma of the upper or lower extremities, use an assistive device such as a walker or wheelchair and if you cannot or not willing to perform activities in the study.

(September 2014) Two postdoctoral postions are available at CLAWS. Print

Two Postdoctoral Research Associate positions are available at Laboratory of Ambient and Wearable Systems at the University of Alabama. The laboratory is engaged in several NIH-funded research projects covering physiological and behavioral monitoring in natural environment. The laboratory develops state-of-the-art monitoring solutions and closely collaborates with leading clinical researchers in the areas of nutrition and obesity, rehabilitation, physical activity monitoring, smoking behavior and others. The research pursued in the laboratory has been published in the leading venues (various IEEE transactions, Nature Publishing group, Elsevier, etc.) and received awards such as Bluetooth Innovation of the Year.


IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology highlights research at CLAWS Print

EMB cover

January/February 2010 issue of IEEE in Medicine and Biology Magazine is dedicated to the theme of Energy Balance. The introductory article contains description of work performed in our lab: both on energy expenditure (the shoe-based monitor) and energy intake (the food intake monitor).

Our project wins an award! Print

The project on monitoring of physical activity and energy expenditure won the Bluetooth Innovation World Cup 2009! The competition included more than 250 entries from all over the world. The winning project stems back to the original sensor shoe. The device is now being commercialized by Physical Activity Innovations LLC under a grant from the National Institutes of Health.
