Abstract

The PhD aimed to understand and advance measurement methods to investigate the influence of the home physical environment on children's physical activity and sedentary behaviour. A qualitative study highlighted parents' role in creating, changing and controlling the physical home environment and informed an adapted social-ecological model. Two validated measurement systems were developed; an audit to assess the home physical environment and a novel RFID based location and movement monitoring system to measure location-based physical activity of children in home environments. The thesis outcomes have enabled better understanding and measurement of the home physical environment and children's movement within it.
