Dear Netters,

I am a postgraduate student currently reviewing the influence of obesity
on performance of daily living activities, particularly the mechanics of
these activities. I have conducted numerous searches and found very, very
little scientific research in this area. Can anyone please direct me to
possible sources of relevant information or let me know if you are also
interested in this area.

I have found information on the effects of obesity on fitness and physical
activity but I would like more specific information on the effects of
obesity on performing tasks such as walking, rising from a chair and the like.

I will post a summary of the responses!


Thanks very much!!!!!
