We would like to invite you to take part in a study looking to develop Cystic Fibrosis specific physical activity recommendations, which is being conducted in collaboration with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common, life-limiting disease in the Caucasian population, with physical activity recognised a one of the most important treatment strategies that is also associated with an improved quality of life in those with CF. However, despite this, we don’t currently know how much physical activity should be recommended or how to account for the greater relative difficulty of physical activity for those with more advanced CF. Therefore, we are looking for healthy participants to help us investigate the relative difficulty of a variety of tasks and activities so we can develop suitable daily activity recommendations for those with Cystic Fibrosis.

What is a “healthy volunteer”?

If you are between 8 to 18 years-old, have no known health problems, can undertake daily activities such as walking and are happy to take part, we would love to hear from you!

What will I have to do?

If you or your child would like to take part, we will invite you to visit us three times at Swansea University Bay Campus. During these visits, we will assess how well your lungs work and how thick your bones are, give you some physical activity monitors to wear for a week and ask you to do a range of daily activities, including some exercise on a treadmill. We will explain everything in more detail before you agree to take part but if this sounds interesting, please get in touch!

How do my child or I volunteer?

If you would like to take part, or find out more information about the study please contact Mayara Silveira:
