Twenty subjects wore the instrument on the nondominant wrist while performing standardized tasks selected to represent day-to-day activities at three levels of intensity (five tasks in each level): light (1-2 metabolic equivalents), moderate (3-4 metabolic equivalents), and heavy (4-6… CONTINUE READING
