OBJECTIVE To assess the correlation between data generated by an accelerometer-based activity monitor and the distance moved in cats. STUDY DESIGN Prospective experimental study. ANIMALS Three, four-year-old, male, purpose-bred research cats, weighing between 5.1 and 5.9 kg. METHODS Part I: Collar and harness mounted accelerometers were evaluated in three cats, comparing simultaneously collected accelerometer data with movement data from computer-analyzed video. Part II: Cats wore collar… CONTINUE READING
