Call for participants to be involved in new study

Posted on 17th January 2012

Researchers at the Centre are conducting a new study that will assess responses to cycling through different environments, and have made a call for participants to be involved.

The study will take place on an indoor bicycle as participants are ‘immersed’ in changing scenes. The investigation will focus on post menopausal women and members of the public are invited to volunteer.

If you are a post menopausal woman who typically takes part in less than 5 sessions of physical activity (each less than 30 minutes) per week and have no medical conditions that can be made worse by exercising, we’d like to hear from you.

For more information about the study and to register your interest please contact Dr Katherine Ashbullby at or on 07792445178.

Further details are available in the poster attached below.
