The purpose of this study is to determine whether an individuals cardio-respiratory fitness level can protect them from the negative metabolic impacts of prolonged sitting time. Overall, it is hypothesised that in individuals with high fitness, the unfavourable effect of prolonged sitting (build up of sugar, fat and insulin in the blood following a meal) will not be as substantial, nor will light activity breaks be as advantageous, compared to individuals with lower fitness as...
The primary aim of this study is to investigate the acute effect of the frequency and duration of breaks in sitting time on the metabolic risk factor profile.
Research shows that sitting for long periods of time on a regular basis is bad for health and can leave individuals more susceptible to Obesity, Cardiovascular Disease, Type 2 Diabetes and premature death regardless of exercise engagement outside of these seated hours. As sitting is so common in modern society it is vital that research explores ways to protect individuals from this worsening issue. Investigators want to see if breaking up long periods of sitting time wit...
Background: - Some studies in adults have found that insulin and glucose blood levels are lower when a long period of sitting is broken up with walking, compared to sitting without breaks. This means that the body can better process sugars when there are walking breaks during the day. Researchers want to know if this is also true for children. Some studies have found that children s attention and memory might be better after exercise. Researchers want to know if short ...
Previous research suggests that prolonged sitting increases risk for cardiometabolic diseases and the risk factors associated with cardiometabolic diseases. However, no study to date has examined if a chronic intervention that breaks up prolonged sitting in a real-world environment results in a reduction in the metabolic risk factors associated with cardiometabolic diseases. Thus, the objective of this study is to examine the potential health benefits of breaking up sitting bou...
The investigators are doing a study to learn how to support patients aged 60+ in taking more breaks from sitting and reducing total sitting time. The goal of the study is to find out if a sitting time reduction intervention reduces sitting time compared with a control group.
The investigators are doing a study to learn how to support patients aged 60+ in taking more breaks from sitting. The goal of the study is to find out if using commercially available devices are helpful in reducing sitting time.
The purpose of this project is to investigate the effect of breaking prolonged sitting on acute adipose tissue and metabolic responses.
Societal changes have resulted in reduced demands to be active and increased daily time spent sitting. Sedentary behavior (SB) has been linked to many health problems such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Office-working adults are a high-risk population for excessive SB. Increasing the length and frequency of breaks from sitting and increasing the time spent standing and engaged in light physical activity are ways to decrease SB. The purpose of this study is to determine w...
Excessive sitting time (sedentary time) has been associated with risk of insulin resistance and other factors which may be relevant to breast cancer prognosis. This 8-week study tests different strategies for helping breast cancer survivors to modify their levels of sitting time. Participants will be assigned with equal likelihood to one of three groups (1) overall reduction in sitting time, (2) interruption of sitting time with standing breaks, and (3) usual care.
ACS examined the potential influence of intermittent physical activity breaks of various intensities (control, light, moderate, vigorous) on measures of immediate mental performance, mood, hunger and several metabolic outcomes in children aged 7-11 years. We build upon previous work to hypothesize that higher-intensity intermittent physical activity breaks throughout an 8-hour day will improve immediate mental performance, mood, and post-exercise physical activity levels, while...
This study is a randomized crossover trial to compare the effectiveness of interrupting SB on glucose homeostasis in the lab and free-living settings. All participants (N=56) will complete one screening visit to determine eligibility, complete at fitness test, and body composition analysis by bioelectrical impedance. After 7-21 days, all participants will complete two 3-hour in-lab oral glucose tolerance tests (spaced 7-21 days apart). Prior to the in-lab OGTT visits, participa...
There is a growing health burden in Sweden and Europe arising from the interrelated sequelae of metabolic disorders comprising impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), obesity and T2DM. Obesity and inactivity are the main drivers of IGT and T2DM and are responsible for up to 8% of health costs and 13% of deaths in Europe, with the risk of co-morbidities rising in parallel with increasing body weight. IGT and T2DM are the paradigm of inactivity-related disorders: the majority of people...
Over 3 million in the United Kingdom are now diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, with current estimates suggesting this will rise to over 5 million by 2025. Type 2 diabetes increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, depression, neuropathy and dementia, along with being a leading cause of amputation and adult blindness. Sedentary behaviour, defined as any waking moment spend sitting or reclining with energy expenditure equal to or less than 1.5 METs, h...
The purpose of this project is to provide a new framework for diagnosing and monitoring treatment of light sensitivity and headache by objective measurement of facial features, pupil responses, retinal electrical responses and autonomic nerve responses to light.
This pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) will examine the effect of a tailored workplace intervention based on interrupting sitting on work productivity, well-being and cardio-metabolic risk in office workers. The experimental group in the 8-week intervention will be prompted to alternate between sitting and standing while working. The ratio between sitting and standing will begin at 3:1 (two hours per day in an eight-hour day) and increase to 1:1 (four hours per day in an ...
Multiple studies have demonstrated a very low prevalence of women meeting physical activity and weight gain recommendations during pregnancy. Additionally, previous Blossom Project studies have shown that when pregnant women engage in a 20 minute walk each day, they spend significantly more time sitting in addition to longer bouts of sitting resulting in increased total sedentary time. We are going to test which method works best to decrease sitting time, and how those methods ...
Prolonged sitting has been shown to effect the response to a high fat tolerance test (HFTT) after acute exercise. This study will evaluate the effect of prolonged sitting on response to a HFTT after a short term training period.
Excessive sitting, or sedentary behaviour (SB), has been associated with numerous detrimental health outcomes and chronic diseases. Given the sedentary lifestyle of university students and occupational workers, interventions aimed at reducing SB are becoming increasingly important. Previous research has shown positive health benefits associated with frequent breaks in prolonged SB. However, it is unclear what the effect of different types of activity breaks have on work-related...
Sedentary behavior, characterized by excess sitting time during waking hours, is detrimental to health and increases cardiometabolic disease risk, independent of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. The mechanisms that mediate this are unknown and there are no evidence-based methods known for effectively intervening on sedentary behavior. The consequences of prolonged sitting time are of particular interest in older adults as sedentary behavior and cardiometabolic disease ri...
The purpose of this study is to: 1. Evaluate the relative efficacy of a treadmill desk intervention and a sit/stand desk intervention on light physical activity and sitting behaviors at work over four weeks; 2. Evaluate the relative efficacy of a treadmill desk intervention and a sit/stand desk intervention on the cardiometabolic risk profiles (composite measure of fasting glucose, insulin, triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol, and blood pressure)over a four-week...
