• This study evaluated the feasibility, acceptability, safety, and preliminary efficacy of an intervention to reduce sedentary behavior (SB) in older adults that can be disseminated broadly for limited cost and delivered by paraprofessionals with limited training. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Participants free of the outcome of interest in both knees at study baseline were included (sample sizes ranged from 694 to 1,331 for different outcomes). (cdc.gov)
  • This mini-review provides an overview of the applicability of the SenseWear armband (SWA), which combines accelerometry with measurements of heat production and skin conductivity, to measure total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) and its components such as exercise energy expenditure (ExEE) in athletic populations.

  • The aim of this study was to quantify the variability of overall PA and of time spent in different PA intensities assessed through 24 h-accelerometry in a general adult population. (biomedcentral.com)
  • A cross-sectional study was conducted with a probabilistic sample of 2152 schoolchildren. (deepdyve.com)
  • Twenty-nine children with PAH and 60 age- and sex-matched control children completed the accelerometry study. (theactigraph.com)
  • Accelerometry should be considered as a clinically meaningful endpoint in pediatric PAH, and may be useful to implement in future trial design as an adjunct to six-minute walk testing, particularly for younger children or those with developmental disabilities. (theactigraph.com)
  • One study found that "the chances of a child being obese or overweight were 20-60 percent higher among children in neighborhoods where it was not safe to walk around or where there were no sidewalks. (wikipedia.org)
  • In Study 1, no significant differences were observed in students achieving ≥30 (OR:1.13, 95% CI:0.92, 1.39) or ≥60 min/day of MVPA (OR:0.92, 95% CI: 0.78, 1.07) from baseline to follow-up between Manitoba and PEI. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In Study 2, no significant policy effect on students' MVPA trajectories from baseline to last follow-up were observed between Manitoba and Alberta overall (−1.52, 95% CI:-3.47, 0.42), or by covariates. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Such information is important, since in epidemiologic studies one is usually interested in the 'average' PA amount, in order to estimate to what extent persons with higher or lower PA levels differ in chronic disease risk. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of initiation of sacubitril/valsartan vs enalapril treatment on objective measures of both waking activity and sleep in subjects wit. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Individual PA, as assessed using 24 h-accelerometry, is highly variable between days, but the day of assessment or the day of the week explain only small parts of this variance. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Other roles have included, Senior Lecturer in Public Health Nutrition at Northumbria University, where in June 2010 she was awarded the Association for the Study of Obesity (ASO) Young Achiever Award for her Obesity research. (tees.ac.uk)
  • This study compares breast cancer survivors' exposure to walkable and recreation-promoting environments using dynamic Global Positioning System (GPS) and static home-based measures of exposure in relation to insulin resistance. (aacrjournals.org)
  • This is the first study to compare associations of dynamic versus static built environment exposure measures with insulin outcomes in breast cancer survivors. (aacrjournals.org)
  • The purpose of this study is to see if sleep apnea is common in hypertrophic cardiomyopat. (bioportfolio.com)
  • The purpose of this research study is to further establish the diagnostic use of magnetocardiography (MCG) in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). (bioportfolio.com)
