  • Physical Activity
Does the patient undertake sufficient Physical Activity? Record as Sufficient / Insufficient / Sedentary

Sufficient physical activity for health benefit for a usual 7-day period is calculated by - summing the total minutes of walking, moderate and/or vigorous physical activity. Vigorous physical activity is weighted by a factor of two to account for its greater intensity. Total minutes for health benefit need to be equal to or more than 150 minutes per week.

Insufficient physical activity for health benefit is where the sum of the total minutes of walking, moderate and/or vigorous physical activity for a usual 7-day period is less than 150 minutes but more than 0 minutes.

Sedentary - is where there has been no moderate and/or vigorous physical activity during a usual 7-day period.

The National Physical Activity Guidelines for Australians describes Moderate-intensity physical activity as causing a slightbut noticeable, increase in breathing and heart rate and suggests that the person should be able to comfortably talk but not sing. Vigorous physical activity is described as activity, which causes the person to ‘huff and puff’, and where talking in a fullsentence between breaths is difficult.
