Zoe J. McKeough, Sarah L. Large, Lissa M. Spencer, Sonia W.M. Cheng, Renae J. McNamara

  • Too much sitting behaviour is associated with health deficits in the adult population.

  • There has been less examination of sedentary behaviours in people with COPD and bronchiectasis.

  • There was no difference in the high sedentary time between people with COPD and bronchiectasis.

  • No significant associations between sedentary time and functional performance or health-related quality of life were present.
