Abstract

The article discusses the comparison of two sets of accelerometer cut-off points for calculating moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. It was revealed that accelerometer are becoming more widely used in the assessment of physical activity in children, and converting the output in minimum of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) requires the use of age-specific cut-off point definitions.
