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...

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...

Effects of Breaking up Prolonged Sitting on Postprandial Cardiometabolic Disease Risk Markers in South Asian Adults

The purpose of this study is to examine whether breaking up prolonged sitting with short regular bouts of walking can reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels after eating, which are risk markers for Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. This study will compare these responses in normal weight versus overweight/obese South Asian adults.

Combined Effects of Prolonged Sitting and Mental Stress on the Cardiovascular System

Prolonged sitting may pose a public health risk through its effects on the cardiovascular system, and may lead to impaired whole-body cardiovascular health, which includes both vascular and cerebrovascular function. These effects may interact with other environmental variables, such as stress. However, no study has investigated the combined effect of a mental stressor and prolonged sitting on vascular and cerebrovascular function. The combined effect of prolonged sitting and me...

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...

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...

Practical Approaches for Interrupting Prolonged Sitting to Improve Postprandial Glucose and Protein Metabolism

The present study will determine the impact of interrupting prolonged sitting with short, 2-minute walks or body-weight squats on: i) postprandial glycemia and insulinemia, and; ii) postprandial utilization of dietary amino acids. We hypothesize that postprandial glycemia and insulinemia will be similarly improved by interrupting prolonged sitting with short walks or body-weight squats, whereas postprandial utilization of dietary amino acids will only be improved by interruptin...

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

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of 4 days of sitting and moderate exercise on plasma triglyceride elevation after a meal.

Promoting Physical Activity and Break in Office Workers

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 ...

Effects of Cycling Workstation on Cardiometabolic Health for Workers With an Office-sitting Desk (REMOVE)

The recent literature has highlighting the importance of the time of inactivity and the level of physical activity (PA) as predictors of metabolic cardio risks. Now, sedentary lifestyles are well recognized as one of the causes of mortality. As with physical activity, a dose-response relationship appears to exist: mortality would increase with time spent in sedentary behaviors. However, this relationship would not be linear: the more the daily sitting time increases, the more t...

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...

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