Abstract

Accelerometers provide the potential for accurate objective measurement of physical activity, which is important for the epidemiological assessment of activity levels and the association with disease risk and for the quantification of changes in activity behaviour in response to interventions. Hip and thigh are commonly used locations for accelerometer placement. However, it is unclear whether these two locations are comparable in terms of measurement of stepping rate, speed and exercise intensity. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of hip and thigh accelerometer placement on the measurement of stepping rate, speed and exercise intensity at a range of walking speeds.
