Mobility logo_edited.jpg

We are looking for young children (aged 2-4 years) and their parents/guardians to participate in the MOvement and irritaBILITY (MOBILITY) study. This study will explore the association between movement behaviours (i.e. physical activity, sitting, sleeping) and symptoms of irritability in young children. 


What is involved? 

Children will be asked to wear a small device called an accelerometer on their hip for 7 days on three occasions over 12 months (baseline, 6 months, 12 months). Parents will be asked to complete a questionnaire at each of these time points.  

For participating in this study, you will receive a $40 gift card to President's Choice at each data collection point ($120 over the entire study). 


Who should I contact if I'm interested? 

​If you are interested in participating or have any questions about the study, please get in touch with Dr. Sophie Phillips (
