Yes, you heard me correctly. This is an opportunity to give back to the diabetes community through participating in research, while also receiving compensation to do so if selected.
I am working with Matchstick LLC (my disclosure) to help spread the word and find participants for their study detailed in Matchstick’s words quoted below:
“[Matchstick’s] goal is to understand what patients and caregivers want and need to create solutions that eliminate barriers to treatment and ensure clients are developing the right devices. To us, the people who use these devices always come first.
Matchstick is running an online research study that can be completed on your computer or through an app. The study goal is to understand the current practices of insulin pump users. If you have diabetes, are insulin dependent, and use either Sure – T or Silhouette with a pump you may qualify for this research study.
This online study is currently open and closes end-of-day Thursday, July 5th.[*] The study is set to be completed over the course of 2 separate days of your choosing during the open period. It should take approximately 45 minutes to complete the activities for each day, for 90 minutes of participation in total.
If you qualify and complete the study you will receive compensation for your time.”
- You must be US-based to participate.
- Encrypted platforms are used, and participant information will be de-identified.
- The research is being conducted for a device company client of Matchstick LLC. The research will not be published.
If interested in participating and/or sharing the link, the insulin infusion study screener can be found here.
