Objectively measuring daily physical activity (PA) using an accelerometer is a relatively expensive and time-consuming undertaking. In routine clinical practice it would be useful to estimate PA in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with more simple methods.
To evaluate whether PA can be estimated by simple… (More)
With the growing amount of physical activity (PA) measures, the need for methods and algorithms that automatically analyze and interpret unannotated data increases. In this paper, PA is seen as a combination of multimodal constructs that can cooccur in different ways and proportions during the day. The design of a methodology able to integrate and analyze… (More)
