In this study, researchers characterize the levels of objectively measured sedentary time and physical activity (PA) in women with fibromyalgia and compare them with age-matched healthy control women.

The study comprised 413 (aged 51.9±7.4 years) women with fibromyalgia and 188 (aged 50.9±7.5 years) controls. Sedentary time, PA and step count were measured by triaxial accelerometry. Time engaged in sedentary behaviors as well as in different PA intensities (light, moderate and moderate-vigorous [MVPA]) were calculated (min/day), as well as the number of steps/day.
