  • Full names for the acronyms reported in the tools column can be found in table 1. Recommendations in bold are backed by evidence from the systematic review. Recommendations which are not bold are theoretical but no evidence could be found in the literature; ‘+’ represents a positive attribute; ‘−’ a negative attribute.

  • SB, sedentary behaviour.
