Physical activity (PA) is important for the development of children with disabilities, but rarely does this population meet the recommended standards. Schools are salient locations for PA, but little is known about how specific school settings affect the PA of children with diverse disabilities. We assessed PA and sedentary ...
No study has comprehensively examined the independent and combined effects of sensory impairment, physical activity and balance on mortality risk, which was this study’s purpose.
Data from the population-based 2003–2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) was used, with follow-up through 2011. Physical activity was assessed via ...
To describe the longitudinal relationship between height-for-age z score (HZ), growth velocity z score, energy intake, habitual physical activity (HPA), and sedentary time across Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) levels I to V in preschoolers with cerebral palsy (CP).
Children with CP (n = 175 [109 (62.2%) boys]; mean recruitment age 2 ...

Objective physical activity (PA) monitoring via accelerometry is both costly and time consuming. Furthermore, overall adherence to a monitoring protocol is often complicated by disability. Therefore, it is essential that strategies for supporting accelerometer wear for youth with disabilities are maximized. The purpose of this perspective was to provide ...

Valid objective measurement is integral to increasing our understanding of physical activity and sedentary behaviours. However, no population-specific cut points have been calibrated for children with intellectual disabilities. Therefore, this study aimed to calibrate and cross-validate the first population-specific accelerometer intensity cut points for children with intellectual disabilities.

Objectives: To describe objectively determined sedentary and activity outcomes (volume and pattern) and their associations with cardiometabolic risk biomarkers in individuals with and without mobility disability.
Setting: Population based
Participants: Community-dwelling older adults (≥60) living in the United States who were participants in the 2003 to 2004 or 2005 to 2006 National ...

Background: Adults with intellectual disability (ID) are physically very inactive. This study will compare two approaches to increasing physical activity in adults with ID: a lifestyle physical activity (light-moderate intensity) approach and a structured exercise (moderate-vigorous intensity) approach. The trial will compare the short-term (3-month) and long-term (9-month) outcomes and ...

Introduction: Very little is known about physical activity (PA) and PA patterns measured with objective methods among children with intellectual disability (ID).
Purpose: To investigate PA and PA patterns among Icelandic school children with mild-to-severe ID.
Methods: A sample of 91 children with ID and a randomly selected age- and sex-matched ...

Introduction: Individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) have low physical activity (PA) levels (PAL) and daily energy expenditure (DEE)(1;2).
Aging process begins earlier in adults with ID(3). Nowadays it is possible to assess PAL, intensity, steps and DEE objectively through
accelerometry in this population(4). Purpose: To analyze the PAL of adults (...

Background: Adults with intellectual disability (ID) are less physically active than persons without ID (WID). However, very little is known about physical activity (PA) patterns of ID children and adolescents.
Purpose: To investigate PA patterns of Icelandic primary school children with mild-to-severe ID.
Methods: Anthropometric measurements were obtained from 91 ID ...
