, Sartor, and Bonomi ( 2016 ) were able to identify a limited number (i.e., 1–2 exercises) of resistance training exercises with >80% accuracy during laboratory-based validation testing with research-grade accelerometers. Additionally, Chang, Chen, and Canny ( 2007 ) found high accuracy using a two

In a clinical setting, the Timed Up and Go test with the addition of a cognitive task is one of the most common metrics for assessing DT declines in PD. During the cognitive Timed Up and Go, the individual stands, walks 3

In this study, we address this limitation by testing an achievement-specific vulnerability hypothesis, which states that dimensions of
