AIM This study examined the effect of different epoch lengths (from 3 to 60 s) on (a) moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA), (b) 10 minutes bouts of MVPA and (c) compliance with World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, as measured with an ActiGraph accelerometer. METHODS A sample of 401 adolescents (14.48±0.69 years) wore a GT3X accelerometer to measure physical activity (PA) for 7 consecutive days. Data, originally collected in 1-s epoch(s), were then reintegrated into epochs of 3… CONTINUE READING
