1. Reduced physical activity as a result of COVID-19 related restrictions may be associated with higher levels of stress and anxiety. 2. Relationships between perceived activity level, stress, and anxiety are confounded by genetic and environmental factors in addition to age and sex. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Due to the Covid-19...
While numerous studies have previously examined associations between physical activity and mortality, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers, the majority of this evidence has been cross-sectional, single-timepoint data, or has relied on a single baseline physical activity assessment for correlation. Few studies have examined physical activity trajectories over time, and...
1. Youth aged 6 to 25 with chronic physical conditions were found to have more than 50% greater risk for developing mental health conditions on 2-year follow-up in a national survey. 2. Activity limitations mediated some of this risk, and were independently associated with increased risk for developing mental health...
1. In this cross-sectional study, the prevalence of sitting watching television or videos for at least 2 hours per day remained stable over a 15-year period. 2. Computer use during leisure-time increased among all age groups, and total sitting time increased among adolescents and adults. Evidence Rating Level: 3 (Average)        Study Rundown:...
1. In this randomized controlled trial, a behavioral intervention increased physical activity and reduced sedentary activity in type 2 diabetes patients. 2. The effects of behavioral intervention were sustained over 3 years. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent)       Study Rundown: Regular physical activity is recommended for patients with type 2 diabetes (DM2), though adherence...

Factors associated with unplanned reoperation after above-knee amputation Unplanned reoperation is a significant source of morbidity and mortality in patients that have undergone above-knee amputation (AKA). While there are certain unifying features to this patient population, namely significant underlying vascular disease, the authors of this study aimed to identify risk...
1. The effect of physical activity at reducing the likelihood of major mobility disability (MMD) was not impacted by the baseline frailty status of patients in the study. 2. The physical activity intervention was found to be associated with improvement in the inability of patients to rise from a chair. Evidence...
1. In a randomized control trial, monetary loss-incentive design resulted in a significantly greater proportion of participants reaching their physical activity goal during the intervention period, compared to control group. 2. A daily positive monetary incentive for reaching goal or lottery eligibility equivalent had no significant effect on the proportion...
  1. On school days, adolescents obtained 55% of their daily physical activity at school, but a relatively low percentage of total time at school was found to be active time (4.8%). 2. Adolescent girls obtained less physical activity minutes per day than boys in all recorded locations except near school. Evidence...
