Call for Participants: Making Smart Moves Study

Studies have shown that being sedentary for long periods increases risk of falls, heart disease, diabetes, and death. The average older adult spends up to 70% of their waking time being inactive. This figure increases further after a fall.  The SMART-MOVE research study intends to evaluate ways to reduce inactivity time in people with falls or at risk of one.

This research is seeking volunteers to participate for 6 months.

Self-compassion and Commitment to Exercise in Midlife and Older Adults

William Tierney from the University of Adelaide is researching the role of self-compassion in the relationship between commitment to exercise, attitudes to ageing, and responses to barriers in midlife and older adults. Results could help to determine the most effective ways to encourage engagement and commitment to exercise, and in turn, improve the health and functional capacity of midlife and older adults.
