BACKGROUND Accelerometers can provide accurate estimates of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA). However, one of the limitations of these instruments is the inability to capture light activity within an acceptable range of error. The purpose of the present study was to determine the validity of different activity monitors for estimating energy expenditure (EE) of light intensity, semi-structured activities. METHODS Forty healthy participants wore a SenseWear Pro3 Armband (SWA, v.6.1… CONTINUE READING
