Compare the level of PA (physical activity) in groups with and without STIMUL device at 4 months


Regular physical activity (PA) is a key element in the success of bariatric surgery and the prevention of complications associated with frequent co-morbidities. However, the levels of PA observed in patients who will benefit from bariatric surgery are generally low, and many patients do not comply with the recommendations of their course in terms of PA. It is envisaged that coaching interventions and adapted programs can improve the level of PA. The objective of this pilot study is to evaluate the effectiveness and adherence to digital tools on the level of PA in preparation for bariatric surgery.
