Comparison of equations for predicting energy expenditure from accelerometer counts in children
(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2008-01-14)
Several prediction equations developed to convert body movement measured by accelerometry into energy expenditure have been published. The aim of this study was to examine the degree of agreement between three different ...
Does birth weight influence physical activity in youth? a combined analysis of four studies using objectively measured physical activity
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011-01-12)
Animal models suggest growth restriction in utero leads to lower levels of motor activity. Furthermore, individuals with very low birth weight report lower levels of physical activity as adults. The aim of this study was ...
Are self-report measures able to define individuals as physically active or inactive?
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-02)
Purpose: Assess the agreement between commonly used self-report methods compared with objectively measured physical activity (PA) in defining the prevalence of individuals compliant with PA recommendations. Methods: Time ...
Do physical activity and aerobic fitness moderate the association between birth weight and metabolic risk in youth?: the European youth heart study
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2010-10-04)
OBJECTIVE: Lower birth weight has been associated with a greater risk of metabolic diseases. The aim of this study was examine whether physical activity and aerobic fitness may modify associations between birth weigh and ...
Fat-free mass mediates the association between birth weight and aerobic fitness in youth
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011-06)
Objective: To investigate whether birth weight acts as a biological determinant of later aerobic fitness, and whether fat free mass may mediate this association. Methods: The European Youth Heart Study (EYHS) is a ...
Sedentary time and physical activity surveillance through accelerometer pooling in four european countries
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-12-10)
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to pool, harmonise and re-analyse national accelerometer data from adults in four European countries in order to describe population levels of sedentary time and physical inactivity. ...
