UCT student Rob Henst has undertaken to research the effects of obesity on South African sleep patterns.
The PhD students says there is a gap in knowledge concerning sleep and quality of health in the country.
Listen to the full conversation from CapeTalk’s Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:
The Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine (ESSM) at UCT, is looking for slim and overweight participants to take part in the study.
Participation involves visits to the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA).
Participants will receive a personal sleep report worth R850 at the end of the study, and a report with the general results from the study and there will be no remuneration for participating.
