Take part in physical activity study

June 18th, 2024

The university’s School of Life Sciences is running research investigating how physical activity and inactivity affects our bodies and the processes of healthy aging.

This study will require volunteers aged between 55 – 65 years-old who are overweight, to either increase or reduce their physical activity for six months. Those who reduce their activity will attend three months of supervised training at follow-up sessions to restore their fitness levels.

Participants will be compensated for their time.

This study will help to provide insights and information on the importance of physical activity in our communities, and specifically in an aging population.

This information is of great importance in understanding the aging process which will allow us to better promote and inform the healthy aging requirements and guidelines.
