How sickening is sitting


Starting date: 01/03/2013

A combination of different research methods will be used within this project:

  1. Controlled laboratory research into optimal measurement of time spent in sedentary behaviour for children.
  2. Longitudinal research into the long-term health effects of sedentary behaviour and sedentary behaviour patterns during childhood
  3. Experimental research into the acute health effects of prolonged sitting, and insight into physiological mechanisms behind these health effects in children
  4. Participative research with children into the personal and environmental determinants of their sedentary behaviour.
