A Qualitative Study: Body Scanning & Health Behaviours

Are you a woman between 18-45?

We are looking for women to help us to test an appearance-related intervention.

We are interested in whether whole-body scanning can help women to eat and exercise more healthily, so we are asking for women 18-45 years to help us to do this.

Please do not sign up for this study if you have any history of eating disorders, or other problematic relationships with food.

The test session will take about 45 minutes and will be carried out at Manchester Metropolitan University or University of Manchester at a time to suit you.

We will take an image of your body using a whole body scanner. This will show you how you look from all angles.

We want to know your views on being body scanned, and you will be interviewed before and after taking part. Interviews will be audio-recorded.

If this sounds interesting and you are able to help, please contact Sarah Grogan on  s.grogan@mmu.ac.uk
