Introduction Physical activity is known to prevent cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, the relative importance of accumulating physical activity in sustained bouts versus shorter bouts in terms of CVD risk is yet to be determined.
Purpose The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA), ...
Physical activity is becoming increasingly recognized as valuable to cancer patients during treatment and rehabilitation. Therefore strategies and measures to encourage patients to become more active and to achieve physical activity recommendations are of great importance.
Purpose The study evaluated an accelerometer based biofeedback device by measuring the change of ...
Optimal sleep duration (7-8h), moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity
(MVPA) and light-intensity activity are beneficially associated with cardiometabolic
outcomes and related biomarkers, while sedentary time and long (≥9h) or short (<7h)
sleep duration are detrimentally associated.
Purpose This study examined whether sleep duration modified the relationship
between both sedentary/...
Physical activity can benefit the health of youth with Type 1 diabetes. Despite the
benefits some studies have found patients do not always meet the physical activity
recommendation of 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) per
day. Physical activity and sedentary behaviour have not been measured previously in
Scottish youth with ...
Purpose A hallmark characteristic of heart failure (HF) is reduced physical activity (PA) patterns and functional capacity. The relationship between key cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) variables and PA patterns has not been investigated. To evaluate PA patterns in patients with ischemic HF and its relationship to peak oxygenconsumption (VO2), the ...
Aim Little is known of the longitudinal association between sub-clinical atherosclerosis from childhood to adolescence. Therefore, the aim was investigate the association between physical activity (PA) intensity across childhood and sub-clinical atherosclerosis in adolescence.
Methods This was a prospective study of a sample of 236 children (baseline age 8-10 y) with ...
To examine relationships between physical activity (PA) and awareness and treatment status of low bone mineral density (BMD) among adults.
Stratified sample of adults living independently in the community.
A total of 1928 adults aged 50 years and older who participated in the National Health and Nutrition ...
Individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) demonstrate attenuation or absence of nocturnal reductions in blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) (Rosado-Rivera et al., 2011; J Spinal Cord Med, 34, 395). Diminished rhythmicity is associated with increased incidence of cardiovascular disease and mortality (Verdecchia et al., 1993; Circ, 88; 986). Differences in the levels of ...
Children with congenital heart disease (CHD) have a reduced exercise capacity. Studies suggest that prolonged hospitalization might contribute to deconditioning in exercise capacity. This study examined the postoperative physical activity among children with CHD after a hospital stay.
34 children and adolescents with CHD (21 girls, 8.0 years [IQ: 6.0-11.0 years]) ...
Evidence for altered central pain processing and hypersensitivity of the central nervous system, i.e. central sensitization, in chronic whiplash associated disorders (CWAD) is accumulating. Dysfunctional descending inhibitory action is one of the major characteristics of central sensitization and has been studied during exercise in some chronic pain conditions, ...
