Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study identified the correlates of objectively and subjectively measured physical activity in adult wheelchair users. Fifty participants wore an activity monitor for a week and completed a questionnaire about factors associated with physical activity. Objectively measured activity correlated significantly with body mass index. Subjectively measured activity correlated significantly with age, stage of change, health, healthcare providers discussing exercise, and social support for exercise. Research on the effect of body mass index on activity in this population is needed. Intervention planners should plan programs that place emphasis on modifying the social environment (including healthcare providers) and removing attitudinal barriers.
