Abstract: There are major health concerns that relate to the lack of physical activity in a general population. In the UK, a major study has been carried out that brought together health assessment audits across a range of health conditions influenced by physical activity (cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal conditions, mental health, etc.) This was used to create PALMS (Physical Activity Lifelong Modelling & Simulation). PALMS is a microsimulation that predicts the lifelong physical activity behaviour of a population taking into account individual characteristics and their effect on physical activity over time. The model produces individual and aggregated quantitative outputs for quality of life and health conditions related costs. Thus, PALMS can be used to assess the impact of physical activity on the aforementioned health conditions across the population.
