A world-first trial in south western Sydney is investigating whether the so-called ‘silent sound’ that emanates from wind farms is harmless, or if it causes nausea, dizziness or irritation, as some believe.
Residents in the Narellan, Campbelltown, Camden, Cobbitty, Douglas Park, Pictor, Tahmoor, The Oaks and Thirlmere areas are invited to participate in new research by Woolcock Institute of Medical Research.
The Woolcock is seeking volunteers from south western Sydney for the home study. Participants will have a customised sound system installed in their bedroom and will undergo sleep assessments and testing at home three times during the six-month trial.
Volunteers will be compensated for their time and need to be:
• aged over 18 years
• speak fluent English
• get regular sleep (no shift-workers).
