Abstract

Abstract Unimpaired adults born preterm at very low birth weight (VLBW;<1500 g) consistently report lower conditioning physical activity than those born at term. We used wrist-worn accelerometers to objectively measure physical activity in 57 VLBW and 47 controls aged 25 years. We found no difference in any physical activity measures.
