A new project is looking for over 65s around Alston Moor who want to improve their health and fitness.  The year long project aims to improve your diet and exercise by offering advice, guidance and monitoring through your TV. 

The service has already been trialled in Cumbria and has helped people increase the amount of exercise they do and improve their diet.  One of the participants Barbera Chorley said “I have lost a bit of weight since losing it which is a bonus.  Its keeping up with the times having health information on your TV.” 

Daniel Heery, Project Manager at Cybermoor said “This is a great way for people who want to improve their diet and get more exercise to benefit from free advice and support coming straight into their homes via their TV.”

This is a research project funded by the EU and will also be running in Spain and The Netherlands.  The project in Cumbria is managed by Alston Healthcare and there is no charge to take part.  If you are interested, more information is available at www.alstonhealthcare.co.uk/physiodom or call the office on 01434 382 808.  Deadline for applications is 26th February.
