classes were asked to wear an accelerometer (n = 886). This study utilizes accelerometer data collected during baseline measurements only, which were collected in October 2012 (cohort 1) and October 2013 (cohort 2) for 2 phases of the program. Full details of the Healthy Lifestyles Programme trial are

analysis of shared physical activity. The overall purpose of this study was to present a new method for measurement of shared physical activity. The 2 specific goals were to describe shared patterns of physical activity between mothers and their young child (aged 1–5 y) and to examine the relationships

, tissue mass prediction equations for the upper 12 and lower 14 extremities have been developed from simple surface anthropometric measurements (lengths, circumferences, breadths, skinfolds) and validated against the actual tissue masses provided by DXA. These regression equations allow for the

however, validity of the MatScan COP measurements and the ability of the device to detect changes in postural sway during a single leg stance has not been established. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to compare the measurement of 4 COP excursion variables during single-leg static balance

, & Lofus, 1997 ). In this paper we first focus on the development of the inventory, which included validation and cross-validation processes, applications, and contributions of the VOI. Then, we discuss in depth the VOI’s contributions and implications from the measurement perspective. Finally, we describe

In recent years, an inertial measurement unit (IMU) has been integrated into GPS devices, to provide additional information relating to physical loads during games and training. IMUs consist of the inertial sensors accelerometers and
