The Steinbeis Transfer Center for Health Promotion and Metabolism Research looks at the physiological influence of nutrition and certain nutrients on the human organism, particularly in combination with physical exercise (weight training, endurance training, vibration training).
We know today that the progression of many chronic medical conditions can be positively influenced by lifestyle changes, not just in preventative terms but also through therapeutic intervention. Healthy eating and exercise improve the risk profile of conditions such as diabetes and arterial sclerosis. They can also contribute to the retention of muscle power and muscle function. Both of these aspects are indispensable in, as far as possible, living an independent life and taking responsibility for oneself.
Against this backdrop, clinically controlled randomized studies are designed and carried out individually at the center according to the principles of good clinical practice (GCP). The Steinbeis Enterprise also offers a wealth of experience in the planning, implementation, and assessment of programs aimed at optimizing lifestyles. These programs revolve primarily around optimizing nutrition and increasing physical activity, and they are designed both face to face and as part of online training courses.
The following measurement methods can be offered:
