PURPOSE/AIMS: The goal of the present study is to characterize physical activity (PA) of adults with mildùmoderate intellectual disabilities (ID) using accelerometer technology (Personal Activity Monitor- PAM) to objectively monitor sedentary, moderate and aerobic activity. This study will determine if the use of a PAM increases PA in adults with ID compared to those using PAM plus receiving electronic messaging. In addition, this study will build upon previous work describing PA of adults with ID to aid future intervention work.
BACKGROUND: Regular physical activity and active recreation are essential in health promotion and maintenance. There is vast information on health promotion for the general population and for people with chronic diseases, such as diabetes and arthritis. However, programs have not been tailored to meet the specific needs of people with ID. PAM will be utilized to monitor PA patterns 24 hours of the day for a 28 day period in young adults with ID.
METHODS: This randomized controlled study will be composed of 50 young adults with ID, ages 18-25 enrolled in UCLA Pathway program, a two-year postsecondary education program for young adults with ID. BMI, waist circumference, and blood pressure will be measured at baseline and Day 28. The Personal Activity Monitor will be worn 24 hours daily with the exception of bathing. Following fourteen days of habitual PA measurement, participants will be randomized. The treatment group will receive individualized daily cell phone or computer prompts to maintain or increase their PA. Participants will download activity data daily using their personal computer to a centralized data base. The International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) short form and Goldin questionnaire will be completed at baseline, Day 28, and 1 month follow up.
RESULTS: Work currently in progress. It is hypothesized that the young adults using a PAM while receiving individualized electronic prompts will maintain or increase their physical activity, as compared with their counterparts who are using only PAM.
IMPLICATIONS: Prevention of disease, promotion of health, and maintenance of functional independence require such behaviors as regular physical activity, sports participation, and active recreation. These health behaviors are essential for persons with and without disabilities. Although ID is usually not associated with known biological causes, it is associated with insufficient physical activity resulting in high rates of chronic disease, contributing to increased premature and preventable morbidity. Secondary conditions resulting from ID may require certain revisions to various health promotion interventions to assure successful adaptation and outcomes. Further efforts are critically needed in the area of the development of PA assessment methodology for persons with disabilities.
