Brief Summary:
This study will assess the physiological demands related to Singing for Lung Health participation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Healthy Other: Singing participation

Detailed Description:
This study will assess the physiological demands experienced by healthy volunteers participating in components of a Singing for Lung Health session. Oxygen consumption, heart rate, and fixed body sensor output puts related to balance and movement intensity will be assessed. The same parameters will also be assessed during walking on a treadmill at different speeds for comparison.

Intervention Details:
  • Other: Singing participation
    Participants will follow a 15 minute protocol consisting of the components of a Singing for Lung Health class, and a short period walking on a treadmill.


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Oxygen consumption in mL per kilogram per minute during different components of Singing for Lung Health(physical warm up, rhythm exercises, pitch exercises, vocal exercises, repertoire and relaxation) [ Time Frame: Single assessment at baseline. ]
    Assessed using portable metabolic measurement equipment (Oxycon Mobile made by Vyaire).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Heart rate during different components of Singing for Lung Health (physical warm up, rhythm exercises, pitch exercises, vocal exercises, repertoire and relaxation). [ Time Frame: Single assessment at baseline. ]
    Assessed using a portable heart rate monitor.

  2. Comparison of oxygen consumption, in mL per kilogram per minute, achieved during each component of Singing for Lung Health with walking at different speeds [ Time Frame: Single assessment at baseline. ]
    Oxygen consumption, in mL per kilogram per minute, will be assessed during different components of Singing for Lung Health(physical warm up, rhythm exercises, pitch exercises, vocal exercises, repertoire and relaxation. This will be compared with oxygen consumption while walking at three speeds on a treadmill (slow, medium and brisk). Oxygen consumption will be assessed using portable metabolic measurement equipment (Oxycon Mobile made by Vyaire).

  3. Movement intensity during different components of Singing for Lung Health(physical warm up, rhythm exercises, pitch exercises, vocal exercises, repertoire and relaxation). [ Time Frame: Single assessment at baseline. ]
    Assessed with the McRoberts fixed-body sensor MoveTest device.

  4. Changes in centre of mass during different components of Singing for Lung Health (physical warm up, rhythm exercises, pitch exercises, vocal exercises, repertoire and relaxation). [ Time Frame: Single assessment at baseline ]
    Assessed with the McRoberts fixed-body sensor MoveTest device.
