Associations of physical activity or sedentary behaviour with pain sensitivity in young adults of the Raine Study

  • Published on May 29, 2019

Background and aims There is high level evidence for physical activity (PA) improving outcomes in persistent pain disorders and one of the mechanisms proposed is the effect of exercise on central nociceptive modulation. Although laboratory studies and small field intervention studies suggest associations between physical activity and pain sensitivity, the ...

Sleep pattern detection using raw tri-axial wrist and hip actigraphy in the Raine Study

  • Published on Jun 21, 2017

Sleep disorders occur in around 20% of the population and are associated with a multitude of serious health implications. Whilst polysomnography is considered the 'gold standard' in assessing sleep patterns, it is intrusive and costly hence actigraphy is increasingly being considered as a viable alternative. Current actigraphic sleep pattern detection algorithms ...

Do parents’ sleep problems get passed on to their kids?

  • Published on Jun 8, 2016

The sleeping habits of more than 1,000 adult West Australians are to be assessed to see if their sleep disorders are capable of being passed on to their children. The research will provide comprehensive data on the sleep patterns of adults aged 45 to 75 years old and investigate the most common disorders ...

Isolating out-of-bed wear from non-wear and in-bed wear periods in young adults hip-worn accelerometer data (continuous wear protocol)

  • Presented on 2015

Background: The published literature shows no automated method valid for isolating adults out-of-bed wear in continuously worn (24h/day) accelerometer data. We developed an automated algorithm (AA) for continuous hip-worn protocol Actigraph (GT3X+) data that separates out-of-bed wear from in-bed wear and non-wear periods. Methods: In 95 participants of the ...

Assessing sleep using hip and wrist actigraphy

  • Published on Jan. 19, 2015

Abstract: Wrist actigraphy is commonly used to measure sleep, and hip actigraphy is commonly used to measure activity. It is unclear whether hip-based actigraphy can be used to measure sleep. This study assessed the validity of wrist actigraphy and hip actigraphy compared to polysomnography (PSG) for the measurement of sleep. 108 ...
