Take a STAND 4 Health

Take a STAND 4 Health was a smartphone-based sedentary behavior reduction study that examined whether a 4-week multi-component behavioral intervention helped individuals reduce their sedentary time and whether that change in sitting time improved blood pressure. Participants (n=36) were randomized to either the intervention or the control group and were predominately white (78%) females (92%) with obesity. Even though there was no observed significant group by time interaction for objectively measured sedentary time, participants were highly engaged with the intervention and rated it favorably.
