ASSESSMENT OF CIVILIANS FOR RECRUITMENT IN THE ARMY

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

Military personnel face a multitude of diverse and adverse situations in difficult terrain daily. They are required to perform in extreme environmental conditions and required to maintain their equilibrium. The nature of their work demands a balance between physical, psychological and social wellbeing. Stringent physical parameters are addressed during the recruitment process, however psychological and psychophysiological assessment is in still lagging behind. The current project aims to assess several psycho-physiological variables such as reaction time, neuromuscular coordination, galvanic skin response, heart rate and so on of the military personnel. Further, the study aims to validate the existing recruitment processes through psycho-physiological methods.
