Inertial sensor data were collected from 12 infants with typical development for a period of 8-13 hours per day. There were 2 months between visits and a total of 3 visits per infant. An inertial sensor was attached to each leg, recording simultaneously accelerometer and gyroscope measurements at 20Hz. In previous work, we developed and validated a threshold-based algorithm where each pause or change of direction of the limb is counted as a discrete movement. Here we determined the duration… Expand
