Seasonality in swimming and cycling: Exploring a limitation of accelerometer based studies

Flo Harrison, Andrew J Atkin, Esther M F van Sluijs, Andy P Jones Preventive Medicine Reports, Volume 7, September 2017, Pages 16–19 Abstract Accelerometer-based studies of children’s physical activity have reported seasonal patterns in activity levels. However, the inability of many accelerometers to detect activity while the wearer is swimming or cycling may introduce a […]

Childhood predictors of adolescent behaviour: The prospective association of familial factors with meeting physical activity guidelines.

Brown H, Corder K, Atkin AJ, van Sluijs EMF Prev Med Rep. 2017 Mar 23;6:221-227. doi: 10.1016/j.pmedr.2017.03.012 Abstract Little is known about the longitudinal association of familial socio-demographic factors, behaviours, attitudes, or home environment with meeting physical activity guidelines. Our objective was to a) describe 4-year change in the prevalence of meeting guidelines, and characteristics […]

Determinants of Three-Year Change in Children’s Objectively Measured Sedentary Time.

Atkin AJ, Foley L, Corder K, Ekelund U, van Sluijs EM. PLoS One. 2016 Dec 12;11(12):e0167826. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0167826. Abstract Background: Sedentary behaviours (SB) are highly prevalent in young people and may be adversely associated with physical and mental health. Understanding of the modifiable determinants of SB is necessary to inform the design of behaviour change […]
