Validating Accelerometers for the Assessment of Body Position and Sedentary Behavior

There is growing evidence that sedentary behavior is a risk factor for mental health. Activity sensors play an important role in the investigation of sedentary behavior.
But how exactly do they measure sedentary activity, and where is the best place to measure it?
The following table gives a short overview of the validity of different activity sensors. Further information can be found in the article: Validating Accelerometers for the Assessment of Body Position and Sedentary Behavior.

Assessment of the circadian stimulus potential of an integrative lighting system in an office area

Ambulatory Assessment and Mobile Monitoring are the expertise of movisens. In order to support scientific work in these areas, movisens has been supporting student projects over the last 10 years by providing free loans of sensors and software.
Once again a study idea has been successfully carried out by an innovative project!
Students of the University of Lund examined the influence of integrated lighting systems in the office in relation to well-being and health.
