About

The addition of ultrasound-induced adipose tissue cavitation (UATC) at the level of the abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue may seem relevant as an additive treatment option to exercise intervention in individuals with obesity. However, whether individuals with obesity who participate in an exercise intervention and additionally undergo UATC, are more likely to develop a metabolically healthy phenotype, as opposed to subjects with obesity undergoing exercise training or UATC only, remains to be studied. Therefore, the first aim of this study is to examine the impact of combined UATC during exercise intervention on abdominal subcutaneous and whole-body adipose tissue mass, quality of life and cardiometabolic risk in individuals with abdominal obesity.
