Author(s): Esha Bichu and Neeraj Kumar

Abstract:
Background: Due to the advances in smartphone technology, adolescents find difficult to refrain themselves from these devices. Smartphone usage is almost uncontrollable among the youth. This screen-based activity has become so addictive that youths fail to allocate their leisure time for physical activity. These high-tech tools have become a major contributor to sedentary lifestyle leading to low physical fitness levels.
Aims: To study the association between Nomophobia and level of physical activity in physiotherapy undergraduates.
Settings and Design: 200 students from DR. A. P. J Abdul Kalam College of Physiotherapy, Loni were randomly selected. The participants included were between the age group of 18-22 years. Participants who were not willing to participate in the study were excluded.
Methods and Material: Participants were assessed for Nomophobia and Level of physical activity using Nomophobia questionnaire (NMP-Q) and International physical activity questionnaire (IPAQ-LF).
Results: The result obtained suggested that mean and standard deviation of Nomophobia questionnaire (NMP-Q) for 200 samples was 70.29 ± 24.88 and for the International physical activity questionnaire (IPAQ-LF) was 597.92± 378.49.The correlation coefficient® of 200 samples was 0.020.The result of the study showed negative and significant correlation with p value < 0.0001.
