Abstract

Background Long and frequent bouts of sedentary behaviour pose a major risk to health and increase the incidence of hypokinetic diseases and mortality, independent of the risks caused by physical inactivity alone. The aim of this systematic review was to determine the effectiveness of interventions used by researchers in altering sedentary behaviour among adults aged 60 years or older.
