Abstract

The aim of this study was to systematically review the literature on physical activity variables derived from body-worn sensors during long term monitoring in healthy and in-care older adults. Using pre-designed inclusion and exclusion criteria, a PubMed search strategy was designed to trace relevant reports of studies. Last search date was March 8, 2011. Studies that included persons with mean or median age of >65 years, used accelerometer-based body-worn sensors with a monitoring length of >24 h, and reported values on physical activity in the samples assessed.
