The MMoST Feasibility Trial (Maximising Mobility and Strength Training) has received OCTRU Green Light approval to open to recruitment. We want to conduct a large clinical trial comparing mobility and strength training plus extra protein to training alone in older people with low protein intake. This is a feasibility trial to find out whether it is possible to undertake this trial.
The feasibility trial aims to recruit 50 people aged 65 years and over who have problems with their walking, or are walking more slowly than before and have low protein intake. All participants will take part in an exercise programme to improve walking and muscle strength. Half of participants will also be given protein drinks to help build their muscles.
