OMiCS - Optimizing Movement in Children Study, Canada
Objective: With the Optimizing Movement in Children Study (OMiCS) we investigate the effects of physical activity on the proteome, metabolome, and microbiome in 8-10 year old children of varying physical activity levels. For this cross-sectional study, children's physical activity levels are assessed with accelerometers. Traditional health measures include: anthropometrics (height, weight, waist circumference), spirometry, resting heart rate and blood pressure. Furthermore, we assess cortisol levels in hair, and telomere length. Other assessed measures include: sleep, sedentary time, and socioemotional health assessments as they pertain to physical activity. Blood serum, plasma, and mRNA are biobanked for this study.
