A comparison of the validity of downloadable motion sensors, which use either a glass-enclosed magnetic reed proximity switch technology, a piezo-electric sensor accelerometer with a horizontal beam technology, or an internal pendulum based mechanism to determine energy expenditure (EE), across different body sizes does not exist. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the validity of three different downloadable motion sensors to estimate EE during walking activity in normal… CONTINUE READING
