PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare two commercially available accelerometers with indirect calorimetry in a group of older adults (x +/- SD; 70.6+/-3.7 yr; N = 86, 44 males and 42 females). METHODS The accelerometers (Caltrac and Tritrac, Hemokinetics, Madison, WI) were worn while performing three submaximal, discontinuous (5 min exercise, 2 min recovery), progressive levels of treadmill walking and bench stepping. The treadmill exercise averaged 3.4 mph, at 0.4% grade, 3.0… CONTINUE READING
