870. Reducing prolonged sedentary time using a treadmill desk acutely improves cardiometabolic risk markers in male and female adults
In developed countries and the rapidly urbanizing populations of developing countries, too much sitting as distinct from too little exercise has become the default behavioural option. Reducing prolonged periods of sitting has therefore emerged as a new focus for reducing the risk of cardiometabolic diseases.

869. Physical activity levels in adults and older adults 3–4 years after pedometer-based walking interventions: Long-term follow-up of participants from two randomised controlled trials in UK primary care
Physical inactivity is an important cause of noncommunicable diseases. Interventions can increase short-term physical activity, but few interventions have evaluated physical activity objectively beyond 12 months. We followed up two pedometer interventions with positive 12-month effects to examine objective physical activity levels at 3–4 years.

868. Engaging Fathers to Increase Physical Activity in Girls: The “Dads And Daughters Exercising and Empowered” (DADEE) Randomized Controlled Trial
Fathers may influence their children’s physical activity, but often spend more time with their sons and rarely participate in family-based programs. This study tested a novel program designed to increase the physical activity levels of fathers (29–53 years) and their daughters (4–12 years).

867. Cluster randomized controlled trial of a multilevel physical activity intervention for older adults
Older adults with higher levels of physical activity have been shown to have improved cognitive function, reduced risk factors for chronic diseases and greater longevity. However, despite the benefits of maintaining a physically active lifestyle in old age, few older adults are regularly active.
