  • Presented on May 21, 2014

Purpose: Different definitions for determining non-wear time are currently used. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of the definition of ActiGraph and activPAL non-wear time on data retention and the classification of sedentary and sitting time in children. Methods: Accelerometer and inclinometer data were drawn from ...

Physical activity and sedentary time are associated with children’s attentional processes

  • Presented on May 21, 2014

Purpose: To evaluate the associations between physical activity, sedentary behavior and cognitive functions in children. Methods: 230 Finnish children (mean age 12.2 years; 56% girls) participated in the study. Self-reported moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and screen time were evaluated with the questions used in the “WHO Health Behavior in School-aged Children” ...

Social ecological predictors of achieving physical activity guidelines in a sample of cardiac rehabilitation patients

  • Presented on May 21, 2014

Purpose: Research on physical activity (PA) in people with heart disease tends to emphasize intrapersonal correlates while largely ignoring the potential importance of higher-level correlates within the social ecological model. Thus, the purpose of this study was to determine the relative importance of several social ecological correlates in predicting whether ...

Associations of Objectively Measured Sedentary Time and Breaks in Sedentary Time With Cardio-Metabolic Markers in a High Risk UK Population

  • Added on June 15, 2012

Purpose Sedentary behaviour is known to have a detrimental effect on health. However, the manner in which is it accumulated may also be important. Therefore, we examined the association of daily sedentary time and breaks in sedentary time with various markers of cardio-metabolic risk. Methods Cross-sectional analysis using 725 participants from ...
