All data for this manuscript were collected in Liège, Belgium, and exported and analysed in London, Ontario. The authors have recently discovered that a software error occurred during data export that caused all actigraphy time-stamps to be shifted by exactly 6-hours due to the time-zone difference between Belgium and Ontario. As a result, the acrophase values reported in the original Table 1 should all be read as occurring 6-hours earlier in the day as displayed in the corrected Table 1 ahead (for example, if an acrophase is reported as 16:57 in Table 1, it should be read as 10:57). The corrected Table 1 appears as within this Erratum.
Importantly, as this software error added only a constant value to each time-stamp of each patient data set, no analyses or results are affected.
