1 Objective Physical Activity Monitoring for Health-Related Research: A Discussion of Methods, Deployments, and Data Presentations John M. Schuna Jr., PhD School of Biological and Population Health Sciences Oregon State University, Corvallis OR

2 What is Objective Physical Activity Monitoring?

3 What is Objective Physical Activity Monitoring? Measure of physical activity behavior - - not fitness Mechanical and electronic devices are used to characterize physical activity behavior 4-14 day data collection periods are common in free-living Waist and wrist are most common locations to wear devices

4 Objective Physical Activity Monitors

5 Pedometers Step counters (electronic or electromechanical) Accelerometers Measure acceleration as a marker of physical activity Predict energy expenditure Also capable of counting steps Multi-sensor devices (wearables) Combine multiple sensor inputs Predict energy expenditure Count steps Predict type of activity Monitor Device Types

6 Common Devices - Pedometers Device Wear Location Outputs Sensors Cost Yamax SW-200 Waist Steps Spring-lever Step Counter $20.00 Omron HJ-151 Waist Steps, Moderate Steps Piezoelectric Accelerometer $30.00 NL-1000 Waist Steps, Distance, Active Minutes Piezoelectric Accelerometer $54.95

7 Common Devices - Accelerometers Device Wear Location Outputs Sensors Cost GT9X Link Waist / Wrist Ankle / Thigh Steps, Activity Counts, Raw Accel Accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope $275 ActivPAL Thigh Posture, Steps Accelerometer $493 GENEActiv Waist / Wrist Ankle / Thigh Raw Accel Accelerometer $248 6 Axivity Waist / Wrist Ankle / Thigh Raw Accel Accelerometer $141

8 Device Fitbit Zip / One Jawbone UP3 Common Devices - Wearables Wear Location Waist Wrist Outputs Sensors Cost Steps, Stairs, Distance, Active Minutes, Sleep, Calories Steps, Distance, Active time, Sleep, Calories Accelerometer $50 / $100 Accelerometer $50 Withings Pulse O 2 Wrist Steps, Distance, Calories, HR, O 2 Sats Accelerometer, Infrared O 2 Sensor $100 7 Apple Watch Wrist Steps, HR, Movement Mode, Calories Accelerometer, Photoplethysmograph $300

JAMA Large Scale Deployments National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) Compliance (%) Males Females Lifestyle Interventions and Independent for Elders (LIFE)

16 Smaller Deployments Minutes Physical Activity During an After-School Program Thousands upon thousands of smaller research applications Pre-school aged children Older adults Old-order Amish < ,425 METs Mean Daily Steps Among Old Order Amish Men 14,196 Women Non-research behavioral interventions and health promotion programs Individualized pedometer-based interventions Worksite health promotion challenges Etc. Schuna et al. (2013). J Sch Health; Bassett et al. (2004). MSSE

17 Objective Physical Activity Monitoring Tips Identify your target population and the physical activity outcome you want to measure Select measurement tool based upon.. Outcome you want to measure Characteristics of your target population/environment Available resources Validity/reliability evidence Design the measurement protocol How will the device be worn? How long will the protocol last? How will devices be retrieved?

18 Barreira, Schuna Jr., Tudor-Locke, et al. (2015). IJO G Coefficients How Many Days of Data Do I Need? 1 0 Reliability of Accelerometer-determined MVPA 7 days to achieve 0.80 reliability Number of Days of Monitoring

19 Objective Physical Activity Monitoring Tips Implementation of the measurement protocol Strategies to increase compliance to the monitoring regimen Planning for device malfunctions and losses Data processing and reduction Data analysis and presentation

20 How Are Objective Physical Activity Monitoring Data Typically Presented?

21 Schuna et al. (2013). IJBNPA Objective Monitoring Data Presentations Average per day summaries (means) over the monitoring frame (e.g., 7-days) are most typical Graphical displays Tabular presentations
