Sammanfattning

Att undersöka en befolknings fysiska aktivitet ger beskrivande data utav

dagsläget samt att resultatet fungerar som mätinstrument för hur en framtida

intervention ska utformas. Syftet med denna studie var att se om något

samband förelåg mellan tre olika undersökningsinstrument för fysisk

aktivitet, som används för med barn med övervikt. Metod: Deltagarna

mättes, vägdes, skattade sin fysiska aktivitetsnivå (frågeformulär), testade sin

fysiska prestationsförmåga (sex minuters gångtest) och deras fysiska aktivitet

mättes (accelerometer). Resultat: Åtta flickor, 7-13 år, med ett Body Mass

Index (BMI) på 26 ± 3,7 kg/m2deltog. Majoriteten skattade sig vara fysiskt

aktiva 30-60 min/dag under vardag och helg, men som grupp var skattningen

signifikant lägre på helgen. Deltagarnas fysiska prestationsförmåga var

signifikant lägre än det beräknade normalvärde. Barnen utförde i snitt 67 ±24

min/dag aktivitet under vardagarna och signifikant mindre aktivitet (31 ±

29,7min/dag) på helgerna. Ett signifikant samband förelåg mellan

undersökningsinstrumenten för utförd fysisk aktivet under vardagarna och

prestationsförmågan, där även en formel för hur sambandet kunde kalkyleras

framtogs. Slutsats: Trots litet deltagarantal skulle studiens resultat tyda på att

6MGT kan användas inte bara för att bedöma prestationsförmåga utan även

för beräknad utförd fysisk aktivitet under vardagarna.

Abstract

Investigation physical activity in a population gives descriptive data and the

result serves as a measuring instrument for how future interventions ought to

be designed. The purpose of this study was to see whether any associations

existed between three examination instruments for physical activity that are

used with children with overweight. Method: The participants were

measured, weighed, estimated their physical activity (questionnaire), testing

their physical performance (six-minute walking test) and their physical

activity was measured (accelerometer). Results: Eight girls, aged 7-13, body

mass index of 26 ± 3.7, participated. The majority of the children estimated

to be physically active for 30-60 min/day, during weekdays and weekends,

but seen as a group the estimation was significantly lower on the weekend.

Their physical performance showed a significantly lower value than the

predicted value. The children performed on average for 67 ± 24 min / day

during the week and significantly less (31 ± 29.7 min / day) on weekends. A

significant association existed between performed physical activity during

weekdays and the performance test. A formula for how this relationship

could be calculated was designed. Conclusion: Despite low numbers of

participants the result of the study could indicate that 6MWT can be used not

only for assessing the performance but also to calculate the executed amount

of activity during weekdays.
