PURPOSE With rising obesity and rapidly decreasing levels of physical activity (PA) in young children, accurate PA measurement is needed for early screening and intervention evaluation. Although the combination of accelerometry (ACC) with HR recordings is accurate in assessing PA intensity in older children, its utility in correctly classifying PA in preschoolers is unknown. METHODS Thirty-three children (64% were boys) were recruited from four German preschools. Data included direct… CONTINUE READING
