Effectiveness of physical activity and sedentary behaviour interventions in altering sedentary behaviour among older adults: a systematic review

Journal Article
McCorry, M., Murphy, M., Bleakley, C., & Mair, J. (2018)
Effectiveness of physical activity and sedentary behaviour interventions in altering sedentary behaviour among older adults: a systematic review. Lancet, 392(S61), S61. doi:10.1016/s0140-6736(18)32045-2
Background Long and frequent bouts of sedentary behaviour pose a major risk to health and increase the incidence of hypokinetic diseases and mortality, independent of the risk...

User adoption of the Worktivity mobile app to help reduce occupational sedentary behaviour in an office environment

Conference Proceeding
Garcia-Constantino, M., Nugent, C., Stephenson, A., McDonough, S. M., Murphy, M. H., & Mair, J. L. (2018)
User adoption of the Worktivity mobile app to help reduce occupational sedentary behaviour in an office environment. In Conference Proceedings of HCI 2018. https://doi.org/10.14236/ewic/HCI2018.175
