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.
