Body Brain Life – Fit Pilot

The pilot program titled Body, Brain, Life – Fit (BBL-Fit) aims to find out how risk reduction in middle age can alter the development of dementia. BBL-Fit assists middle aged individuals who are at risk of dementia achieve and sustain changes in several lifestyle areas hence reducing their dementia risk-profile.  The pilot study is based on two intervention programs previously developed by the DCRC-EDP research team. BBL-Fit will evaluate in a randomised controlled trial (RCT) where it compares a group that receive the online intervention and face-to-face individualised physical activity and dietary programs, with a control group that does not receive any intervention during the intervention period. If successful, the program could become a versatile, low-cost, intervention package available worldwide to help minimise the development of dementia.
