REGULarity of Physical ActivitieS (REGUL'APS)

2014-07-23 21:08:26 | BioPortfolio


In French primary schools, children participate in 3 compulsory hours of physical education (PE) each week unless they have a medical contra-indication. But, there is no scientific evidence (randomized trial) that a weekly physical activity splitting up of these 3 hours of PE brings or not the same effects, particularly to prevent overweight or obesity.

Regul'aps is a cluster randomized controlled trial which wants to evaluate whether splitting up the 3 hours into 3 or 4 sessions (vs. 1-2 sessions) of PE per week has an effect on speed of a BMI increase and on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) over the school year.

Study hypothesis: reduction of speed of increase of BMI and an increase of HRQoL

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

A study that compares a group of participants receiving an intervention with a similar group from the past who did not.

Groups that serve as a standard for comparison in experimental studies. They are similar in relevant characteristics to the experimental group but do not receive the experimental intervention.

Works about a study where participants are assigned to a treatment, procedure, or intervention by methods that are not random. Non-randomized clinical trials are sometimes referred to as quasi-experimental clinical trials or non-equivalent control group designs.

Studies which start with the identification of persons with a disease of interest and a control (comparison, referent) group without the disease. The relationship of an attribute to the disease is examined by comparing diseased and non-diseased persons with regard to the frequency or levels of the attribute in each group.
