Abstract
Physical activity (PA) has been identified as a key health indicator and has been assessed in multiple studies as the study of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, obesity and psychological conditions. For this reason the use of accelerometers to quantify PA is widely accepted in either clinical/laboratory settings as well as in freeliving environments. The use of accelerometers in the measurement of PA is a relatively new technique and, therefore, has been not standardized. The aim of th...
