Association between physical activity in daily life and pulmonary function in adult smokers

  • Published on Apr 2016

Objective: To determine whether the level of physical activity in daily life (PADL) is associated with pulmonary function in adult smokers. Methods: We selected 62 adult smokers from among the participants of an epidemiological study conducted in the city of Santos, Brazil. The subjects underwent forced spirometry for pulmonary function assessment. ...


Screening for physical inactivity among adults: the value of distance walked in the six-minute walk test. A cross-sectional diagnostic study

  • Published on 2016

Context and Objectives: Accelerometry provides objective measurement of physical activity levels, but is unfeasible in clinical practice. Thus, we aimed to identify physical fitness tests capable of predicting physical inactivity among adults. Design and Setting: Diagnostic test study developed at a university laboratory and a diagnostic clinic. Methods: 188 asymptomatic subjects ...


Use of combined method, accelerometer and international physical activity questionnaire, to determinate occurence of physical inactivity in adults

  • Published on 2017

Aim: Evaluate and compare the proportion of Physical inactivity (PI) and associated factors by IPAQ questionnaire, triaxial accelerometry and the combination of both. Adults aged 18 years were enrolled (n = 250). Methods: We considered PI as < 600 MET-min/wk in the IPAQ total score, < 150 min/wk of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity in 7 ...


High sedentary behavior and compromised physical capabilities in adult smokers despite the suitable level of physical activity in daily life

  • Published on Jan/Feb 2017

Abstract: Sedentary behavior may play an important role for health outcomes, regardless of the amount of physical activity in daily life (PADL).We aimed to evaluate and compare sedentary behavior as well as physical capabilities in physically active smokers and non-smokers. Twenty-eight adult smokers and 38 non-smokers free of lung disease ...


Living near the port area is associated with physical inactivity and sedentary behavior

  • Published on Jan/Feb 2017

Context and Objective: The impact of the port of Santos, Brazil, on the population’s health is unknown. We aimed to evaluate the association between living near the port area and physical inactivity and sedentary behavior. Design and Setting: Cross-sectional study developed at a university laboratory and a diagnostic clinic. ...


Abstract MP026: Effects of Substituting Sedentary Behavior With Light and Moderate-to-vigorous Physical Activity on Obesity Indices in Adults

  • Published on Mar 7, 2017

Abstract: Sedentary behavior (SB) has emerged as an independent risk factor for the occurrence of cardiovascular problems and all-cause mortality. However, the deleterious effect of SB may be a consequence of replacing time spent in light and moderate-to-vigorous (MVPA) physical activities. Few studies have explored this topic, especially in prospective ...


Moderate intensity physical activity associates with CSF biomarkers in a cohort at risk for Alzheimer’s disease

  • Published on Feb 6, 2018

Introduction: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by the presence of amyloid β (Aβ) plaques, neurofibrillary tangles, and neurodegeneration, evidence of which may be detected in vivo via cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) sampling. Physical activity (PA) has emerged as a possible modifier of these AD-related pathological changes. Consequently, the aim of this study ...


Objectively measured physical activity, sedentary behaviour and all-cause mortality in older men: does volume of activity matter more than pattern of accumulation?

  • Published on Feb 12, 2018

Objectives: To understand how device-measured sedentary behaviour and physical activity are related to all-cause mortality in older men, an age group with high levels of inactivity and sedentary behaviour. Methods: Prospective population-based cohort study of men recruited from 24 UK General Practices in 1978-1980. In 2010-2012, 3137 surviving men were invited to ...


Physical activity and sedentary behavior following pediatric burns – a preliminary investigation using objective activity monitoring

  • Published on Feb 9, 2018

Background: Adequate levels of regular physical activity (PA) are crucial for health and well-being. Pediatric burn injuries can have major physiological consequences in both the short and long term. The question is whether these consequences affect post burn PA levels. This study therefore aimed to describe PA and sedentary behavior (...


Longitudinal Physical Activity, Body Composition, and Physical Fitness in Preschoolers.

  • Published on Oct 2017

Purpose: This study aimed to investigate longitudinal associations of objectively measured physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior (SB) with body composition and physical fitness at a 12-month follow-up in healthy Swedish 4-yr-old children. Methods: The data from the population-based MINISTOP trial were collected between 2014 and 2016, and this study included the 138 ...
