Novel accelerometer metrics to assess 24-hour movement behaviours

Project information

24-hour movement behaviours represent the time spent each day sleeping, engaged in sedentary behaviours (sitting, lying), and doing physical activity. The inter-play between these behaviours influences the various indicators of health and wellbeing in different ways. Wearable devices such as accelerometers can capture these 24-hour movement behaviours over multiple days and weeks. This project pools accelerometer data from children and adolescents and harmonises it with sociodemographic and health data to look at relationships between movement behaviours metrics, patterns of physical activity, and health.

The core collaborators on the project are from Liverpool John Moores University, University of Leicester, and the University of Cadiz.
