Physical activity in adults with epilepsy

Study title

Physical activity in adults with epilepsy

What’s it about?

The purpose of this research is to find out how physically active adults with epilepsy are.

Previous research has shown that people with epilepsy are less physically active than the general population. The aim of this research is to learn what type of activity adults with epilepsy take part in and how often. This information is needed to understand how people with epilepsy can be supported to be more physically active and to improve their overall health and wellbeing.

Am I eligible to take part?

You are eligible to take part if you:

  • Are an adult (18 years of age or older)
  • Have been diagnosed with epilepsy
  • Have no other health condition that prevents physical activity
  • Are a resident of the UK

What will I have to do?

You will answer questions relating to your everyday physical activity for the last 4 weeks. This will include any physical activity related to work, outdoor activities, and at home. The answers will be anonymous.
