Energy Expenditure in Children with Prader-Willi Syndrome while Walking on a Treadmill

PURPOSE

The aim of this project is to document the amount of calories being spent in children with and without Prader-Willi Syndrome while walking at three different speeds on a treadmill.

PARTICIPANTS

  • 10 children diagnosed with PWS, ages 7-12 years
  • 10 children without PWS who are classified as healthy weight, ages 7-12 years
  • 10 children without PWS who are classified as obese, ages 7-12 years

DESCRIPTION

Participation requires one visit to CSUF, lasting about two hours. Participants will be measured for height, weight, resting energy expenditure (calories spent) and body composition (via low-dose radiation DXA scan). During the walking trials, heart rate and total energy expenditure will also be measured. An incentive will be provided to the child participant for completing the treadmill test.
