ARE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY LEVELS RELATED TO A CHILD’S FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY OR DEVELOPMENT?

Presenter: Banney PJ

This module addresses:

Questions: Is there association between child report, parent report

and accelerometer Measures of physical activity in typically developing

children? Does level of physical activity influence functional capacity or

maturity of gait in children?

Conclusion: Parent and child report overestimated levels of moderate

to vigorous activity compared to accelerometer measures. While a child’s

perception of their level of activity was associated with the gait maturity,

neither time in moderate to vigorous activity or sedentary behaviour in

these typically developing children influenced functional capacity measure.

Key Practice Points:

• As current recommended levels of physical activity are designed to be

monitored by parents, calibration of equivalent accelerometer measures

is required.
