Abstract: The Proof Mining program makes use of functional interpretations in order to analyse non-effective mathematical proofs with the purpose of extracting new quantitative information. A result by Yao and Noor [7, theorem 3.3] that states the strong convergence of a generalized version of the Halpern type Proximal Point Algorithm was recently analysed. The original proof relies on a weak sequential compactness argument, a projection argument and makes use of arithmetical comprehension in a crucial way. I will comment on the elimination of these arguments in the quantitative version and focus on how it was possible to bypass the arithmetical comprehension needed in the original proof. The analysis presented uses the Bounded Functional Interpretation  instead of the more usual Kohlenbach's Functional Monotone Interpretation  and comes as a natural sequel of a paper by L. Leustean and P. Pinto .
