The Prospective Physical Activity, Sitting and Sleep consortium (ProPASS)

 

ProPASS is an international research collaboration platform of cohorts using thigh-worn accelerometry devices to explore the effects of physical activity, posture, and sleep patterns on a wide range of health outcomes. The objectives of the consortium are:

  • to establish a pooled data resource on physical activity, posture allocation, sleep, and health outcomes

  • to develop methods for processing, harmonising, and pooling data of existing such studies

  • to develop methods for collecting data for future studies (prospective harmonisation).

The ultimate goal of the ProPASS consortium as a data resource is to promote collaborative individual participant and prospective meta-analyses on physical activity, posture, and sleep.
