Rehabilitating Overweight People Back to Working Life (ARRO)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Obesity may have implications on the individual's participation in working life through different mechanisms such as comorbidity and loss of functional level. The investigators also know that when exiting the working force, it is difficult to get back later. As rehabilitation back to working life is often not a very focused aim with weight loss treatment, this study sets this as a primary aim by involvement in a 4 week stay at a rehabilitation clinic followed by 48 weeks work practice programme at one of three different companies.
