|Abstract: ||Background: To implement appropriate programs for promoting physical activity (PA) in people who are Deaf, it is important to have
valid instruments for assessing PA in this population.
Objective: The main purpose of this study was to examine the criterion validity of the short form of the International Physical Activity
Questionnaire (IPAQ-S) in Deaf adults.
Method: This study included 44 adults (18e65 years) of both genders (63.6% were females) who met the inclusion criteria. Objective
measures of PAwere collected using accelerometers, which were worn by each participant during one week. After using the accelerometer,
the IPAQ-S was applied to assess participants’ physical activity during the last 7 days.
Results: There was no significant correlation between the average time spent in moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) as
measured by the accelerometer (40.1 6 24.5 min/day) and by the IPAQ-S (41.3 6 57.5 min/day). The IPAQ-S significantly underestimated
the time spent in sedentary behavior (7.6 6 2.7 h/day vs. 10.1 6 1.6 h/day). Sedentary behavior and MVPA as measured by the accelerometer
and the IPAQ-S showed limited agreement.
Conclusions: Our results show some limitations on the use of IPAQ-S for quantifying PA among adults who are Deaf. The IPAQ-S
tends to overestimate the MVPA and to underestimate sedentary behavior in adults who are Deaf.|
