    The Future of Accelerometry Analysis Methods - Dr Alexander Montoye (Pt2)

    Dr Alexander Montoye is working as an Associate professor of Clinical Exercise Physiology at Alma College, Michigan, U.S. His main research area involves physical activity monitoring devices. He studies the accuracy and reliability of various physical activity monitors and also uses them as intervention tools to help individuals become more physically active.

    When Should You Avoid Using Fitbits in Large-Scale Projects? Dr Miriam Cabrita (Pt3)

    What type of projects want to measure PA?
    Considerations when choosing an activity tracker grouped in three main topics:
    Participant-centric:
    Research and innovation driven
    Regulatory

    Dr Miriam Cabrita has done her Bachelor and Master degrees at NOVA School of Science and Technology in Portugal, and her PhD in biomedical engineering in University of Twente

    Interesting Round Table Discussion (Part 2) - ISPAH & ProPASS Event

    “Towards the 1st device-based guidelines of physical activity, sedentary behavior and sleep.”
    Scientific events lead wanted to join PROPASS’ working group:
    Speakers: Karen Milton and Jasper Schipperijn and Emmanuel Stamatakis and Jakob Tarp and Annemarie and Peter T Katzmarzyk and Jo Blodgett and Jasper Schipperijn and Karen Milton 
    Audio podcast of satellite event of the ProPASS consortium-ISPAH partnership: “Towards the 1st device-based guidelines of physical activity, sedentary behavior and sleep
    ISPAH Congress 2022 on the 23rd - 26th of October 2022.Over 90% of the evidence used for guidelines development is based on questionnaires. In the last decade there has been a large increase in device-based cohorts that will likely inform the next generation of guidelines. Compared to questionnaires, devices such as accelerometers capture very different aspects of physical activity, posture and sleep. The symposium’s sessions will discuss the strengths and complexities encountered during the transition of future guidelines from questionnaire-based to accelerometer-measured evidence, and will highlight the instrumental role that ProPASS and other analogous consortia can play in enabling a smooth transition towards device-based and truly global physical activity, sedentary behavior, and sleep guidelines.Speakers:Professor Fiona Bull (World Health Organization)Professor Ulf Ekelund (Norwegian School of Sport Sciences & ProPASS)Associate Professor Karen Milton (ISPAH & University of East Anglia)Professor Jasper Schipperijn (ISPAH & University of Southern Denmark)Dr Matthew Ahmadi (University of Sydney & ProPASS)Dr Jo Blodgett (University College London & ProPASS)Professor Emmanuel Stamatakis (University of Sydney & ProPASS)Professor Peter Katzmarzyk (Louisiana State University)

    Effects of Exercise on Ostoarthritis - Dr Søren Thorgaard Skou (Pt3)

    Effects of Exercise on Ostoarthritis - Dr Søren Thorgaard Skou (Pt3)

    Søren Thorgaard Skou (PT, MSc, PhD) has vast experience within the field of osteoarthritis and other chronic conditions and has been the principal investigator of several high-quality randomized controlled trials on surgical and non-surgical treatment, one of which was published in The New England Journal of Medicine (impact factor of 79.26), the highest ranked of all general medical journals.
    Currently, he is the principal investigator of a randomized, controlled trial of meniscal surgery vs. exercise therapy and education for young people with a meniscal tear (DREAM) and a 5-year EU-funded project (MOBILIZE, grant agreement No 801790) with the overall aim of improving health in people with more than one chronic condition (i.e. multimorbidity) through personalized exercise therapy and education.
    Furthermore, he is the co-lead of Exercise First, a research program funded by Region Zealand aimed at developing, testing and implementing initaitives that support that the individual patient received the right prevention and treatment at the right time and to increase self-management using e-health. 
    He is one of the main architects and leader of the implementation of the highly successful treatment program Good Life With osteoArthritis in Denmark (GLA:D) for patients with knee and hip osteoarthritis.
    Furthermore, he is a recipient of a prestigious ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council, and a postdoc grant and a Sapere Aude Research Talent Award from the Independent Research Fund Denmark.

Humble Gold

These podcasts are pure gold.

The podcast respects the busy listener. The hosts operate from a position of informed and curious humility, endearing qualities that invite the listener into the discussion. It has a wonderful organizational shape in terms of the weekly schedule, regular theme days, length of episode, and variety of content.

The hosts do an excellent job of finding interesting people, prompting them with good questions, and letting them speak. The hosts are accomplished, respected, and authentic researchers in their own right, however they check these accomplishments at the door, preferring instead to make the guests and the listeners the stars of the show. The listener can rest comfortably in knowing that these humble experts are not there to waste time, not there to promote themselves, and only there to make the listening experience worthwhile.
