The prevalence of overweight and obesity is high in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. Half of the Region's adult women (50.1%) and more than two in five men (43.8%) are overweight or obese, and 6.9% of children aged under five years in the Region are already overweight, which is higher than the global average of 6.2%.
The ability to predict wrist and hand motions simultaneously is essential for natural controls of hand protheses. In this paper, we propose a novel method that includes subclass discriminant analysis (SDA) and principal component analysis for the simultaneous prediction of wrist rotation (pronation/ supination) and finger gestures using wearable ultrasound. We tested the method on eight finger gestures with concurrent wrist rotations. Results showed that SDA was able to achieve accurate classification of bo...
Ultrasound (US) imaging has several advantages that include the absence of radiation, portability, excellent resolution of neuromuscular structures, and the ability to perform dynamic examinations. Traumatic muscle injury can be comprehensively evaluated using static, dynamic, and Doppler US imaging. In the present review, we briefly discuss mechanisms of traumatic muscle injury, present US images of normal muscles, focus on US assessment of injured muscles, and concisely discuss treatment and rehabilitatio...
The association between the composition of movement behaviours and mortality risk, acknowledging the composition nature of daily time data, is limited explored. The aim was to investigate how the composition of time spent in sedentary behaviours (SB), light intensity physical activity (LIPA) and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) is associated with all-cause mortality, in a cohort with 15 years follow-up time, using compositional data analysis. Eight hundred fifty-one participants (56% women, mea...
The prevalence of overweight and obesity, particularly among women, is increasing in Nepal. Previous studies in the South Asia have found television watching to be a risk factor for overweight and obesity among women of reproductive age. However, this association had not been studied in the context of Nepal. This study aims to identify the association between frequency of television watching and overweight and obesity among Nepalese women of reproductive age.
In the context of child health in the UK, the focus is centered on childhood obesity, with one in 10 children aged 4-5 years being overweight or obese, rising to one in 3 children by the age of 11-15 years. There is also a concern with micronutrient deficiency, as well as low levels of fruit and vegetable consumption. Many children are also not reaching the recommended 1 h of physical activity per day. The UK government has introduced a number of measures through the Childhood obesity - a plan of action, in...
High sedentary time, low physical activity (PA), and low physical fitness place older adults at increased risk of chronic diseases, functional decline, and premature mortality. Mobile health (mHealth) apps, apps that run on mobile platforms, may help promote active living.
Obesity is a serious public health problem that is growing alarmingly in every segment of the human population. The main objective of this study is to examine the current prevalence of overweight and obesity among Pakistani adults and to identify the sociodemographic factors that are associated with overweight and obesity.
Co-participation in physical activity may be important for helping families with young children meet physical activity recommendations. Yet, little is known about what families perceive to be the benefits, barriers and facilitators of co-participation. This study explored (i) parents' perceptions about physical activity and possible benefits of family-based co-participation in physical activity, (ii) their perceived facilitators and barriers to co-participation and (iii) their recommendations for improving ...
This paper provides brief context for why the physical activity research center was created and how it supports the national movement to build a culture of health.
To examine the relationship between menopausal status and mental well-being, and whether this relationship varies as a function of physical activity (PA).
Assessing factors determining the utilization of physical and occupational therapy in people with spinal cord injury (SCI).
Long outdoor stay may cause hazardous exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) from the sun even at high latitudes as in Sweden (Spring to Autumn). On the other hand long outdoor stay is a strong predictor of primary school children´s free mobility involving moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA). UV protective outdoor environments enables long outdoor stay. We investigated the concurrent impact of different school outdoor play settings upon pupils´ sun exposure and levels of physical activity acros...
Upper-limb paresis is the most common motor impairment post stroke. Current solutions to automate the assessment of upper-limb impairment impose a number of critical burdens on patients and their caregivers that preclude frequent assessment. In this work, we propose an approach to estimate upper-limb impairment in stroke survivors using two wearable inertial sensors, on the wrist and the sternum, and a minimally-burdensome motor task. Twenty-three stroke survivors with no, mild, or moderate upper-limb impai...
Questionnaires provide valuable information about physical activity (PA) behaviors in older adults. Until now, no firm recommendations for the most qualified questionnaires for older adults have been provided.
The main motor impairments of gait and balance experienced by people with Parkinson's disease (PD) contribute to a sedentary lifestyle, resulting in poor physical conditioning, loss of functional independence, and reduced quality of life. Despite the known benefits of physical activity in PD, the majority of older adults with PD are insufficiently active. Few studies incorporate behavioral change approaches to promoting physical activity in PD. The main goal of this research is to foster community mobility ...
Activities throughout the day, including sleep, sedentary behavior (SB), light physical activity (LIPA), and moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) are independently associated with cardiometabolic health. Few studies have examined interrelationships between sleep and 24-hour activity and associations with cardiometabolic risk. The objective of this study is to understand how replacing time in SB, LIPA, or MVPA with sleep impacts cardiometabolic risk.
Most (>90%) children with congenital health defects are not active enough for optimal health. Proactively promoting physical activity during every clinic visit is recommended, but rarely implemented due to a lack of appropriate resources.
Screen viewing is a sedentary behaviour reported to interfere with sleep and physical activity. However, few longitudinal studies have assessed such associations in children of preschool age (0-6 years) and none have accounted for the compositional nature of these behaviours. We aimed to investigate the associations between total and device-specific screen viewing time at age 2-3 years and accelerometer-measured 24 h movement behaviours, including sleep, sedentary behaviour, light physical activity, and mod...
Modifiable lifestyle factors such as physical activity (PA) have ameliorative effects on commonly reported health conditions in schizophrenia like cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Similarly, reduction in sedentary behaviour (SB) promotes better physical health. However, engaging individuals with schizophrenia in PA and less SB can be challenging because of symptoms of schizophrenia. The aims of the present study are (i) to examine the profiles of PA and SB in individuals with schizophrenia; and (ii) to...
Freezing of gait (FOG) is a major cause of falls and disability in Parkinson disease (PD). As FOG only partially improves in response to dopaminergic medication, physical therapy is an important element of its management. The aim of this systematic review is to assess the evidence for the physical interventions for FOG and gait impairments and to establish recommendations for clinical practice.
This study aimed to examine individual and combined associations between after-school sedentary time (ST) and daily physical activity (PA) with executive function development in children.
Although mobile app-delivered physical activity (PA) interventions have the potential to promote exercise, poor adherence to these apps is a common issue impeding their effectiveness. Gaining insights into the factors that influence PA app adherence is an important priority for app developers and intervention designers.
