SOUTHERN Cross University academics are looking for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Sufferers to participate in a pilot study to determine the effects of exercise and rest on sufferers.

Dr Suzanne Broadbent and Dr Rosanne Coutts of the School of Health and Human Sciences have received a grant from the JO and JR Wicking Trust and then Mason Foundation to investigate if intermittent or graded exercise improves patient fitness, fatigue and immune function compared to rest.

The study will run for 12 weeks with short exercise sessions three times per week. The exercise will be either low intensity graded exercise or intermittent low intensity exercise with periods of rest.Participants need to have been diagnosed with CFS by a doctor, be aged between 16 to 65, and have their doctor's approval to do some physical activity.

Those interested can contact Natasha Maslen on 02 6626 9585 for further details.
