. Since that time, large-scale epidemiological studies around the world have demonstrated a relationship between sedentary time, estimated in a variety of ways, and the risk of cardiometabolic disease and all-cause mortality ( Healy, Matthews, Dunstan, Winkler, & Owen, 2011 ; Katzmarzyk, Church, Craig

. Examples included whether moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and sedentary behavior are independent or interrelated, whether replacing sedentary time with light-intensity physical activity also provides health benefits, and how much physical activity is really needed to improve health. As Powell

the application of an alternative prediction model that improves the accuracy of MSQ estimates. Rates of Sedentary Behavior We know the most about rates of sedentary behavior in MS, as the majority of the published research provides estimates of sedentary time when reporting the main study results (c

At high levels of MVPA, the risk associated with all levels of sedentary time become negligible, and, for individuals performing

The results of these studies clearly provide support for the value of such a climate in enhancing physical activity levels (and decreasing sedentary time), actual and perceived motor-skill competence

opportunities associated with step-based physical activity metrics and contemporary wearable technologies, we also consider some additional areas of discussion, such as zero cadence as a proxy of sedentary time, the accuracy of wearable technology, and precision medicine. We focus herein on the potential for
