Objectives: Accelerometry was used to assess the relationship between the physical activity level (PAL) and time spent on activities of various intensities in children.Design: A total of 20 children aged 8.6±3.3 y wore a triaxial accelerometer (Tracmor2) for 2 weeks. PAL was calculated with Tracmor2 output data. The fraction of time spent on activities with a given level of intensity (low, moderate, high) was calculated. The fractions of time spent on activities of different intensities were… CONTINUE READING
