According to the accelerometer data, the participants completed an average of 216.9 ([+ or -] 65.3) counts per minute and 5,494 ([+ or -] 2,428) steps per day.
(14,15) The main variables of interest were average counts per minute, minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and minutes spent sedentary.
The researchers defined a sedentary bout as any period that lasted 5 or more minutes during which the accelerometer recorded less than 100 counts per minute. Although accelerometers provide objective data, the researchers state that these instruments are not sensitive enough to record upper-body movement, biking, or standing.
Accelerometer data are presented as the mean time spent across activity levels, and total PA or mean counts per minute (CPM).
Researchers have calibrated accelerometer output and generated cut-points based on the rate of activity counts per minute that represent moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) for adults from the general population [4,8].
