Royal Derby Hospital looking for volunteers
We have received the following from Dr Laura Carrick from Royal Derby Hospital and University of Nottingham
We were wondering if anyone at your bowling club would be interested in some of our ongoing projects? At the moment I have two studies running which look at your physical fitness
One is a study where we test your physical fitness level using a variety of different measures which we are comparing, this study takes about 3 hours and involves a short cycling test.
The second is a study which involves a 4 week fitness training programme. We test your physical fitness at the beginning and end of the 4 weeks of training, for the training you would need to come into the hospital 3 times a week and it follows National guidelines.
Both of these studies are running through into late Spring next year. If anyone is interested in these studies then I am easily contactable by email. I can always attend any meetings to explain the studies in more detail and forward the information documents. Thank you for your time, Best wishes, Laura Carrick
If any of you are interested please contact Martin Barke or Steve Bird and we will send you contact details.
