PURPOSE This study examined the reliability and validity of the TriTrac-R3D triaxial accelerometer to estimate energy expenditure during various modes of exercise. METHODS Twenty subjects (age = 21.5+/-3.4 yr; body mass index = 23.3+/-3.6 kg x m(-2)) performed five exercises (treadmill walking, treadmill running, stepping, stationary cycling, and slideboard), with each lasting 20-30 min and workload increased at 10-min intervals. To test the inter-TriTrac reliability, two TriTrac-R3D… CONTINUE READING
