The time that children and adults spend sedentary–put simply, doing too much sitting as distinct from doing too little physical activity—has recently been proposed as a population-wide, ubiquitous influence on health outcomes. It has been argued that sedentary time is likely to be additional to the risks associated with insufficient moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. New evidence identifies relationships of too much sitting with overweight and obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular… Expand

Models for Understanding Sedentary Behaviour
With the recognition that prolonged periods of sitting can have adverse health consequences, a research priority is to build the requisite knowledge base for effective interventions—that is, whatExpand
Sedentary Behaviour Epidemiology
Sedentary behaviour epidemiology is the study of the distribution, determinants, and health consequences of sedentary behaviours in the population. It seeks to identify biological, psychosocial,Expand
Managing Sedentary Behaviour to Reduce the Risk of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease
(142 words) Modern human environments are vastly different to those of our forebears. Rapidly advancing technology in transportation, communications, workplaces and home entertainment confer a wealthExpand
Managing Sedentary Behavior to Reduce the Risk of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
Recent observational and experimental evidence is discussed that makes a compelling case for reducing and breaking up prolonged sitting time in both the primary prevention and disease management contexts and the potential of population-wide initiatives designed to address too much sitting as a health risk is highlighted. Expand
Sedentary Behavior and Public Health: Integrating the Evidence and Identifying Potential Solutions.
TLDR
Improvements in device-based measurement that are providing new insights into sedentary behavior and health are described and the implications of research linking evidence from epidemiology and behavioral science with mechanistic insights into the underlying biology of sitting time are considered. Expand
Physical activity and sedentary behaviour: applying lessons to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
Suggestions for the measurement of these behaviours within the clinical setting are provided, as well as for interventions that may be effective at increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary behaviour in this population of people with COPD are provided. Expand
Sedentary Behaviour and Adiposity
TLDR
Results suggest that prolonged time spent sedentary is positively associated with adiposity in children and adolescents, and the association may be partly explained by unhealthy eating behaviour associated with television viewing. Expand
Interventions outside the workplace for reducing sedentary behaviour in adults under 60 years of age.
TLDR
Assessment of effects on sedentary time of non-occupational interventions for reducing sedentary behaviour in adults under 60 years of age finds that interventions outside the workplace probably have little or no difference on body mass index in the medium term and secondary outcomes are uncertain. Expand
Using plantar pressure for free-living posture recognition and sedentary behaviour monitoring
TLDR
A novel methodology for measuring daily life sedentary behaviour using plantar pressure data and a machine learning predictive model is developed and shows that the proposed machine learning classification model exhibits excel-lent recall rates and performs well against the de facto standard.

Displacing Sedentary Time: Association with Cardiovascular Disease Prevalence.
TLDR
Isotemporal substitution of sedentary time with LPA was associated with a trivial relative risk reduction for CVD, whereas the equivalent replacement with MVPA had a small beneficial relationship. Expand

Physiological and health implications of a sedentary lifestyle.
TLDR
An overview of this emerging area of research is given of the ways that it differs from traditional exercise physiology and how they differ from those linking physical activity and health. Expand
Role of Built Environments in Physical Activity, Obesity, and Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
These results provide an empirical rationale for intervention and highlight the need to maintain support for the multisector, long-term efforts required to change environments, and evaluate interventions so they become ever more evidence-based. Expand
Health risks, correlates, and interventions to reduce sedentary behavior in young people.
TLDR
A growing body of evidence supports the development of public health recommendations to limit the time spent in screen-based behaviors and more research is needed to examine the prospective and experimental evidence of associations between overall sedentary time and health. Expand

TLDR
Neighborhood walkability was not related to total sedentary time but was related to two specific sedentary behaviors associated with risk for obesity-driving time and TV viewing time. Expand
Adults' sedentary behavior determinants and interventions.
TLDR
An ecologic model of sedentary behaviors is described, highlighting the behavior settings construct and the multiple levels of determinants of prolonged sitting time, which are likely to operate in distinct ways in these different contexts. Expand
Sedentary behavior: emerging evidence for a new health risk.
TLDR
Comparing epidemiologic evidence suggests that the metabolic and long-term health consequences of habitual sedentary behavior (too much sitting) are distinct from those associated with a lack of moderate-to-vigorous activity (too little exercise). Expand
Associations between perceived neighborhood environmental attributes and adults' sedentary behavior: findings from the U.S.A., Australia and Belgium.
TLDR
Findings suggest that neighborhoods may be designed to improve health through supporting more active and less sedentary transportation, which can be expected to have health benefits. Expand
Measurement of adults' sedentary time in population-based studies.
TLDR
This paper reviews the reliability and validity of self-reported and device-based sedentary time measures and provides recommendations for their use in population-based studies and focuses on instruments that have been used in free-living, population- based research in adults. Expand
Can the built environment reduce health inequalities? A study of neighbourhood socioeconomic disadvantage and walking for transport.
TLDR
Higher levels of walking for transport in disadvantaged neighbourhoods was associated with living in a built environment more conducive to walking and residents of these neighbourhoods having more limited access to a motor vehicle, thus serving to contain or reduce neighbourhood inequalities in chronic disease.

Environmental factors associated with adults' participation in physical activity: a review.
TLDR
Physical environment factors have consistent associations with physical activity behavior and further development of ecologic and environmental models, together with behavior-specific and context-specific measurement strategies, should help in further understanding of these associations. Expand
