Binding Study

Do you bind?

Chest binding can be an important part of transmale life. Researchers at Middlesex Health are studying how binding affects breathing quality. The goal of this study is to help make recommendations for safe and comfortable binding. 

You may be eligible to participate if you:

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Bind on a regular basis

What will be asked of you:

Participants will have one 45-60 minute study visit at Middlesex Hospital. You will have some measurements taken, answer some questions, and complete a breathing test before and after binding. Participants also will use a small device to complete a breathing test at home twice a day for one week (10 minutes per day).
