Help Test Our Cough Monitoring App!

We are a team of researchers with the UW UbiComp Lab and we are researching a cough detection smartphone app. You may have seen some of our publicity here.

We are now seeking volunteers (healthy or with a cough) to help with testing. Testing is easy! It should only take 2-3 minutes of setup time, then a 24-hour monitoring period. And for your help, you’ll receive a $15 Amazon Gift Card!

Here’s how it works:

  • You’ll first download the cough monitoring app using a link we provide.

  • Next, you’ll complete a consent form administered through the app.

  • You’ll then start the cough monitoring and leave the app running for 24 hours.

  • The app will automatically detect and upload sounds it thinks are coughs.

  • You are free to disable the monitoring after the 24 hours are complete.

Interested in participating in the study? Please send an email to letting us know you are interested.

Thanks in advance!
