The aim of this study was to evaluate the agreement between the ActiGraph accelerometer and the Bouchard diary to estimate energy expenditure (EE) in a Spanish adolescent population.
Sixty-one Spanish adolescents, aged 12-16 years, were recruited for this study. The Bouchard diary and the ActiGraph were administered for 3 ...
Juvenile primary fibromyalgia syndrome (JPFS) is a chronic pain condition associated with significant impairment in physical functioning, but no studies have used newer technologies such as actigraphy to document objective physical activity levels in JPFS.
This is the first study to objectively describe physical activity in JPFS patients ...
To compare the test-retest reliability, convergent validity, and overall feasibility/usability of activity-based (AB) and time-based (TB) approaches for obtaining self-reported moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) from adolescents.
Adolescents (206 females and 114 males) completed two 3-d physical activity recalls using the AB and TB surveys, which contained identical lists of ...
Background and Objectives
To review the clinimetric quality of motion sensors used to assess physical activity in healthy children and adolescents (2-18 years).
A systematic literature search was performed in PubMed, Embase, and SpycINFO. The clinimetric quality of two pedometers (Digi-Walker3 Pedoboy), four one-dimensional accelerometers (LSI, Caltrac, Actiwatch, CSA/...
No previous studies about the Thai adolescent’s physical activity patterns using accelerometers have been published, aiming at planning and implementing effective health intervention programs for weight management in Thailand.
To describe differences in physical activity patterns, measured by accelerometers across weekdays and weekend days, in overweight secondary-school ...
