FIT 2 SIT - Are Metabolic Responses to Sitting/Light Breaks Mediated by Fitness?

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...

Arming Health: Can Breaking up Restful Sitting Time With Upper Body Contractile Activity Regulate Metabolic Health.

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...

The Effects of Reducing Prolonged Sitting Bouts in Individuals at High Risk of or With Type 2 Diabetes

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...

Type 2 Diabetes and Exercise - A Pilot Study

A randomised, cross-over trial targeting a small sample of older (age 45-65 years) overweight adults with type 2 diabetes the aims of this pilot study are to: 1. Determine the feasibility of investigating the acute effects of prolonged sedentary behaviour (sitting) in this target group. 2. Compare the acute effects of a single prolonged (8 hour) bout of sedentary behaviour (sitting) on glucose and triglyceride concentrations and key muscle and adipose ...

A Combined HAPA and mHealth Intervention to Increase Non-Sedentary Behaviours in Office-Working Adults

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...

Low Intensity Physical Activity During Sitting on Glycemic Control and Vascular Function in Obese Individuals

Prolonged sitting is a common behavior in contemporary humans. In epidemiological studies, increased sitting time has been associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality. Recent research has also shown that interrupting sitting time with standing prevents the poorer glycemic control. However, studies are lacking which evaluate the impact of low intensity physical activity during prolonged sitting on vascular function. Whether low intensity phy...

Effects of Interrupting Sedentary Behavior on Metabolic and Cognitive Outcomes in Children

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 ...

Reducing Sedentary Behaviour: A Novel Opportunity for Managing Comorbidity in MS?

Activity recommendations for the general population and those with multiple sclerosis (MS) focus on the promotion of activity that has a moderate intensity - in other words, activity intense enough to breathe heavily and sweat. Most adults do not achieve the recommended 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity per week. Even fewer persons with MS meet the recommendations. Those with MS often have problems with walking and fatigue, thus it is not difficult to understand that m...

Acute Effects of Standing, Marching, and Light-intensity Cycling on Executive Control

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...

The Effects of Prolonged Standing Compared to Prolonged Sitting on Postprandial Lipemia

The effects of 12 hours of prolonged standing will be compared to prolonged standing on a high fat tolerance test the following day. Plasma triglycerides, insulin, and glucose will be measured in a crossover study design.

The Effect of Breaking Prolonged Sitting on Adipose Tissue and Metabolism

The purpose of this project is to investigate the effect of breaking prolonged sitting on acute adipose tissue and metabolic responses.

Health Effects of Increasing Muscle Activation While Sitting in Office Workers

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 Health Action Process Approach and Movement Patterns in Adult Office Workers

Societal changes have resulted in reduced demands to be active and increased daily time spent sitting. Excessive sitting has been shown to be a health hazard. The purpose of this study is to examine whether sedentary behaviour and diabetes information grounded in The Action Process Approach is a meaningful source of motivation to reduce daily sitting time among adult office workers. The intervention will target risk perceptions related to sitting by presenting research on prolo...

Sedentary Behavior Interrupted - A Pilot Study of Acute Interventions on Prolonged Sitting

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...

Prolonged Sitting on Responses to Short-Term Exercise Training

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.

I-STAND R21: Reducing Sedentary Time in Obese Older Adults

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.

Investigating Sedentary Time in Aging: New Directions

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 Effect of Frequency and Duration of Breaks in Sitting Time on Metabolic Cardiovascular Risk Factors

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.

The Plan and Stand Study: Reducing Sitting Time in Breast Cancer Survivors

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.


StandUP UBC: Reducing Workplace Sitting

Research indicates that sedentary behaviours, such as prolonged sitting, have negative health consequences and increases risk for disease. Unfortunately, many office-workers spend a high proportion of their workday sitting, often in prolonged unbroken bouts. Recent interventions have provided active workstations (e.g., sit-stand desks) to reduce employee sitting. However, cost prohibits provision of these desks in work environments. There is a need for low-cost solutions to red...

Active Class Space Metabolic Benefits Study

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...

Optimizing Sedentary Behavior Interventions to Affect Acute Physiological Changes

An emerging body of epidemiological evidence suggests that various forms of sedentary behavior, including TV viewing, occupational sitting, and total daily sitting, may be associated with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, overweight and obesity, type 2 diabetes, depression and psychological well-being. Importantly, many of these associations were independent of participation in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity. We propose a pilot study to assess the feasi...

Sedentary Behavior and Health Outcomes Study

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...

The Effect of Sitting and Moderate Exercise on Plasma Triglyceride Elevation After a Meal

Mid-term Effect of a Novel Sit-to-stand Workplace (ACTIVE OFFICE) on Cognitive and Physiological Parameters

Prolonged sitting is a risk factor for cardiovascular and musculoskeletal diseases, diabetes, several types of cancer and all-cause mortality. In combination with static and awkward postures, the prevalence of musculoskeletal diseases can increase further. Although the implementation of sit-to-stand or active workstations can help to reduce sitting time, improve physical activity at work and promote health benefits, it might also lead to changes in cognitive functions such as p...
