Objective To determine if a point-of-decision prompt (PODP) targeting sedentary behaviour influenced the proportion of standing individuals during presentations at an academic conference. Methods Twelve, one-hour groups of presentation sessions (Global Summit on the Physical Activity of Children co...

Background: It is increasingly recognized that standing represents a simple solution to extended periods of sitting. However, it is currently unknown whether workplace standing time is prospectively associated with a lower incidence of chronic diseases. The objective of this study was to examine th...

Oxidative stress has come to the forefront as a contributor to a number of diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases (CVD). High-fat diets (HFD) are thought to increase LDL, which can contribute to oxidative stress by becoming oxidized in artery walls, leading to athe...

Previously we showed that feeding polyphenol-rich wild blueberries (BB) to hypertensive rats lowered systolic blood pressure (BP). Since probiotic bacteria produce secondary metabolites from berry polyphenols which augment the health benefits of berry consumption, we hypothesized that adding probiot...

Little is known about longitudinal trends in objectively measured physical activity (PA) during and after pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) for individuals with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The purpose of this study was to examine the PA trajectories of patients with COPD during and aft...

Abstract There is increasing evidence that select forms of exercise are associated with vascular changes that are in opposition to the well-accepted beneficial effects of moderate intensity aerobic exercise. Objective To determine if alterations in arterial stiffness occur following eccentrically...

Background:

Recent research has investigated development of coaching knowledge; however, less research has investigated the development of coaches who coach athletes with intellectual disabilities. The purpose of this study was to understand how coaches of athletes with intellectual disabiliti...

Altered autonomic function has been identified following ultra-endurance event participation among elite world-class athletes. Despite dramatic increases in recreational athlete participation in these ultra-endurance events, the physiological effects on these athletes are less known. This investigat...

It is clear that while transition from being a driver to being a non-driver is an important, and often negative, event in the life of older adults, there is little support available to help older adults through this transition. This study focuses on increasing our understanding of issues about drivi...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the Sport PEI Active Start program and measure the combined and separate value of training and resourcing early childhood educators. Methods: Early childhood education centres (n=8) were assigned within four different interventions o...

CONTEXT: An estimated 300 000 sport-related concussion injuries occur in the United States annually. Approximately 30% of individuals with concussions experience balance disturbances. Common methods of balance assessment include the Clinical Test of Sensory Organization and Balance (CTSIB), the Se...

Balance is a key component to the assessment of concussion injury; however, the efficacies of clinical tests used are currently under debate. It is questionable whether currently accepted methods of standing balance assessment quantify balance disturbances sufficiently to support decisions on recove...

The useful field of view (UFOV) is the visual area from which information is obtained at a brief glance. While studies have examined the effects of increased cognitive load on the visual field, no one has specifically looked at the effects of postural control or locomotor activity on the UFOV. The c...

Turning, while walking, is an important component of adaptive locomotion. Current hypotheses regarding the motor control of body segment coordination during turning suggest heavy influence of visual information. The authors aimed to examine whether visual field impairment (central loss or peripheral...

Older adults in Canada are largely sedentary and do not meet the recommended amount of daily physical activity. It has been suggested that older adults preferences for physical activities move from those characterized by high intensity and competition, to those of lower intensity and higher social c...

Introduction Standing and treadmill desks are intended to reduce the amount of time spent sitting in today's otherwise sedentary office. Proponents of these desks suggest that health benefits may be acquired as standing desk use discourages long periods of sitting, which has been identified as an i...

RESEARCH DESIGN: The current research measured the differences in oculomotor control between athletes post-concussion (PC) and athletes without concussion (NC) during an active balance control task. METHODS: Nine PC and nine NC athletes wore a monocular eye tracking device, while balance tests were ...

The objective of this study was to systematically review the literature and compare the effectiveness of controlled interventions with a focus on physical activity (PA) and/or sedentary behaviours (SBs) for reducing sedentary time in adults. Six electronic databases were searched to identify all stu...

Objective:

Vitamin D intake in childhood is primarily for the prevention of rickets. Inconsistent evidence has associated adequate blood concentrations with a decreased risk of certain health conditions. Further, obese individuals may have lower vitamin D status. The estimated average requireme...
