About this project
The MSc project advertised is funded by the East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group and University of Hull to determine the economic cost of running a novel resistance and walking exercise programme we have developed and currently running in obese individuals prior to bariatric surgery. The intervention is aimed at improving body composition, strength/power, psychological factors/quality of life and functional abilities.
The project will investigate the economic factors (e.g. cost of equipment/exercise specialists time etc. vs. the perceived and actual physiological, psychological and social benefits of the programme) to determine if the programme is economically viable on this small scale and assess the potential to upscale to both a regional and national level.
