Research Projects looking for Volunteers

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR RESEARCH INTO EXERCISE FOR RELIEF OF CHRONIC KNEE PAIN

University of Bath

Help us compare the effects of upper versus lower body moderate aerobic cycling exercise on pain in individuals with chronic knee pain.

Researchers from the University of Bath are looking for individuals 45 years and above who suffer with chronic knee pain to help compare the pain-relieving effects of upper body moderate aerobic exercise and lower body moderate aerobic cycling exercise.

Throughout this project you will be asked to complete four exercise sessions with us at the University on separate occasions. These visits will take between 75-120 minutes and will involve exercising to a moderate intensity (based on your own perception of effort) for a maximum of 30 minutes. You will be asked to complete hand cycling and lower body cycling on a traditional stationary exercise bike.

You will receive feedback about your fitness and feedback on your pain response to exercise.

For more details and to express interest please Rachel Deere on 07769 335095 or r.deere@bath.ac.uk

The project has been approved by the ethics committee - reference: EP18/19 088.
