Measurement of the 24-Hour Activity Cycle
Measurement of the 24-Hour Activity Cycle

1 CEC

Presented by Benjamin D. Boudreaux, PhD

The aim of this course is to provide fundamental underpinnings of the importance of measuring sedentary time, good quality sleep, light physical activity and moderate to vigorous physical activity in the 24-hour day and explore current technologies used to measure these behaviors, from gold standards to consumer use, the pros and cons, and different things to consider.

In the first course in this series, we considered the impact of sedentary behavior on health outcomes and in the second we explored the role of sleep in the 24-hour movement paradigm. What should now be apparent is that for optimal health all behaviors in the 24- hour paradigm, like decreased sedentary time, good quality sleep, light physical activity and moderate to vigorous physical activity, must be considered. But how do you measure these different behaviors that make up the 24-hour day?

In this course, we will explore current technologies used to measure health behaviors, from gold standards to consumer use, the pros and cons, and different things to consider.

By the end of this course learners will be able to: 

  1. Recall the importance of measuring sedentary time, good quality sleep, light physical activity and moderate to vigorous physical activity in the 24-hour day.
  2. Identify current tools used to measure sedentary time, from gold standard to consumer use, the pros and cons of those tools and other things to consider when using those tools.
  3. Identify current tools used to measure good quality sleep, from gold standard to consumer use, the pros and cons of those tools and other things to consider when using those tools.
  4. Identify current tools used to measure light physical activity, from gold standard to consumer use, the pros and cons of those tools and other things to consider when using those tools.
  5. Identify current tools used to measure moderate to vigorous physical activity, from gold standard to consumer use, the pros and cons of those tools and other things to consider when using those tools.  
  6. Recognize key considerations when combining the measurement of sedentary time, good quality sleep, light physical activity and moderate to vigorous physical activity to represent total health behaviors in the 24-hour day
