SIT: Sedentary behaviour International Taxonomy. Expert concensus project and folksonomy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Evidence, from both cross sectional and longitudinal studies, has shown that sedentary behaviour is associated with poor health and wellbeing outcomes. This has led to several countries including Canada, UK, Ireland, New Zealand, France, Denmark, Finland and USA to issue national recommendations to limit sedentary time at all ages. The next phase of research is to refine these guidelines, but currently sedentary behaviour is an umbrella term that describes a cluster of behaviours where sitting or lying is the dominant mode of posture and energy expenditure is low.
