dc.description.abstract Abstract Background:Screen time can play a significant role in the health and quality of life of people with disabilities.However, there is a lack of studies on this issue among people with disabilities, and even fewer in the universitysetting. Thus, the aim of our study was to explore the relationships between screen time, disability grade, bodymass index (BMI), physical activity and sociodemographic variables (gender and socioeconomic status) in universitystudents with different disabilities. Methods:A cross-sectional study was conducted on a sample of 1091 students with disabilities from 55 Spanishuniversities. Instruments used for data gathering were the Adolescent Sedentary Activity Questionnaire (ASAQ) andthe International Physical Activity Questionnaire-Short Form (IPAQ-SF). A Self-Organizing Maps (SOM) analysis wascarried out to explore the relationships between the variables under study. Results:Participants reported high values in overall screen time (5.45 h per day/week), with computers being themedia most used (2.45 h per day/week). The SOM analysis showed slightly higher screen time values in womenthan men. People with a high disability grade spent less screen time than those with lower disability grade.Contradictory results exist when a group of men with the highest BMI had the highest screen time and the lowestphysical activity (PA) while women with low BMI show the highest screen time and PA. Conclusions:Gender and disability grade played a moderating role in screen time among people with disabilitieswhile BMI and PA do not play such a role. Keywords:Screen, Media, Disability, Adults, SOM
