          Graduation portraits for the Queens Tricolour Yearbook and Class Composites
Registration, sitting information and packages are available on the Queen’s Grad Photos by Taylor
Studios’ website. Graduates can book their own appointments online and choose their own time and
which studio they would like to come to. We would like to encourage everyone to have their portraits
taken as soon as possible as times fill up quickly after Reading Week.

                There are two prizes for those that book early and have their portraits completed by
                Reading Week. This year we have a Nikon Coolpix camera and a Nikon D3000 digital
                SLR up for grabs. Sittings must be completed by the end of Reading Week to be eligible
                for the draw.

Sittings are available now in our main studio located at the FourPoints Sheraton Hotel. We will be on
campus in the Red Room (Kingston Hall) from the end of Reading Week until the yearbook deadline of
March 31st. The deadline for inclusion in any class composites is April 30th.

For those of you that include faculty on your composites, we will provide a no charge sitting in our
main studio. Please call personally to make an appointment at 613-541-1098
                              Subjects Sought: Personal Lift Assist Device
You are invited to participate in a research study to examine the effect an on-body personal lift assistive device
called the Personal Lift Assist Device (PLAD) has on lifting technique and spinal stability. The PLAD was
developed by researchers at Queen's University and is designed to assist you during lifting and static holding
tasks. The PLAD is worn on the body in a suit that consists of an upper body harness, much like a backpack, that
can be detached from the lower body leg straps.

The goals of this research are: a) to determine if this device affects the way in which people lift, b) if these
changes in lifting technique are different between genders, and c) if wearing this device affects dynamic spinal
stability. You will be asked about your comfort while wearing the PLAD as this input will be valuable for
knowledge regarding market readiness.

The study is completed in 2 parts:
   1. A short orientation session in the Biomechanics and Ergonomics Lab (3rd Floor School of Kinesiology
        and Health Studies Building)
   2. Motion capture data collection at the Human Mobility Research Centre (Basement of KGH, enter from
        Stuart St.)

You will receive a stipend of $10.00 for each session in acknowledgement of your time and contribution. It is
anticipated that the total testing time for both parts will be two (2) hours.

Please contact Erin Sadler or Ryan Graham if you are interested in participating in this study.
