BACKGROUND The measurement of activity energy expenditure (AEE) via accelerometry is the most commonly used objective method for assessing human daily physical activity and has gained increasing importance in the medical, sports and psychological science research in recent years. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine which of the following(More)
Regular exercise and physical activity are among the most important factors influencing the quality of life and make a significant contribution to the maintenance of health and well-being. The assessment of physical activity via accelerometry has become a promising technique often used as means to objectively measure physical activity. This work proposes a(More)

Walking is the most common everyday life activity and walking speed can be used as an indicator for human physical activity profile. Energy expenditure is on the other hand often used as a(More)
Over the last years there has been an increasing interest in finding new methods for capturing psychological, behavioral and physiological data in real-time using infield data acquisition systems. Within our research group a system for ambulatory assessment of psycho-physiological signals for real-time data capture has been developed. The system is based on(More)
Epilepsy is one of the commonest, serious and divesting brain disorders. Although it is still an incurable disorder in most cases its symptoms can be ameliorated by life long pharmaceutical treatment. Depending on the type of epilepsy and due to its multifactorial causes, different brain and body parameters need to be assessed continuously over a long(More)
