Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Maximal Oxygen Uptake and Sedentariness: an Observational Study

This study has been completed.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Norwegian University of Science and Technology
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01931111
First received: July 19, 2013
Last updated: June 20, 2016
Last verified: June 2016
  Purpose
This is a substudy of the Generation-100 study (NCT01666340). The aim of this study is to find critical values for (1) maximal oxygen uptake and (2) sedentary behavior, below which cardiovascular risk parameter clustering is apparent in an elderly Norwegian population.

Condition
Aging

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Correlation Between Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Sedentary Behaviors and Maximal Oxygen Uptake in an Elderly Norwegian Population
