Abstract Background:<\b>
Excessive television (TV) viewing and insufficient physical activity (PA) are independently associated with inverse health-related quality of life (HRQOL). However, the recommendations of TV viewing time (2 h/day) and multiple-intensity PA (≥150 min/week) in relation to HRQOL among older adults are not well understood. This study examined the associations of TV viewing time, walking time, moderate-to-vigorous PA (MVPA), and total PA with HRQOL among Taiwanese older adults. Methods:<\b>
The sample comprised 1,066 older adults (aged ≥65 years) from Taipei city, Taiwan. Cross-sectional data were collected through computer-assisted telephone-based interviews in 2015. Data on self-reported TV viewing time, leisure-time PA (LTPA), sociodemographic variables, and HRQOL(Including mental component summary [MCS] and physical component summary[PCS]) were collected in this study. A binary logistic regression analysis was performed to calculate the adjusted odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for TV viewing time, walking, MVPA, and total LTPA and the likelihood of HRQOL. Results:<\b>
Older adults with insufficient MVPA were more likely to report lower MCS (OR = 1.38, 95% CI 1.04, 1.82). After the results were stratified according to sociodemographic variables, older men (OR = 1.68, 95% CI 1.10, 2.59) with insufficient MVPA were more likely to have lower MCS, but not older women. Conclusions: Older men with insufficient MVPA have lower perceived mental health, but not women. Additional prospective studies are required to confirm the observed relationship between MVPA and mental health in older adults residing in a metropolitan region.Keywords: physical activity; HRQOL; metropolitan; older adults
