Earlier this year, SBRN published an updated definition of the terms “sedentary” and “sedentary behaviour” in response to confusion around the use of the terms in the published literature.  

Recently, a letter to the editor by Ragnar Viir and Alar Veraksitš was published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism where concern with SBRN’s proposed definition of sedentary behaviour was expressed. The letter can be read in full here.

Dr. Mark Tremblay, a founding member of SBRN, has responded to this letter and his response can be read in full here.
