282: Crowd Sourced Float Research: Project Arcturus

You’ve heard all about the Float Research Collective already, but have you heard about Project Arcturus? Are you ready to dig into that cloud-based research network that Dr. Justin Feinstein has been talking about for a few years? We hope you said yes because it’s time! On this episode, Dr. Feinstein and three board members from the FRC dive into the nitty gritty details of this first major phase of the fundraising efforts and goals for the float community. Brad Dauk joins co-hosts Dylan and Kim as they explore the goals of the project.

Brad’s background in medical databases lends well to the FRC, as he’s a key player in ensuring we have a powerful system to start collecting anonymous data from our members to better understand exactly why our members are choosing to float consistently. The goal is for 100 float centers to sign up to donate $100 per month, and those who do will get to participate, and will be recognized in the research publications and on the FRC website. They’ll also get first dibs at the database, so they can use it to better understand how to market float therapy as a whole.

This episode includes answers to many of the questions and concerns the team has heard about the FRC, and it includes a powerful call to action: sign up to support Project Arcturus to help elevate the credibility of float therapy!

To join project Arcturus, vist https://clinicalfloat.funraise.org/ and make a $100 recurring monthly donation. You will automatically be signed up and all your donations through 2024 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $150,000.
