Physical Activity Monitor study

content

Currently not recruiting

What are we doing?

We are assessing the accuracy of commercially available physical activity monitors and those that are for scientific use.

Why are we doing this?

Wearable monitors are being used increasingly to monitor physical activity in research studies within the field of exercise and health science. Physical activity-related interventions are using activity trackers for self-monitoring, goal-setting, and measurement. Before more widespread use of these trackers occurs in research studies, for either intervention or measurement purposes, it is important to establish their accuracy and consistency.

Who are we looking for?

  • Males and females
  • Aged 18-60 years
  • Moderate to high levels of physical activity

How will you benefit?

Following your participation in the study, you will be provided with feedback, including information about your body weight, body mass index, body fat, muscle mass, blood pressure and fitness status (VO2max).
