Physical activity monitoring during hospital stay: a validation study

The primary aim of this study was to investigate the concurrent validity of the PAM AM400 accelerometer for measuring physical activity in usual care in hospitalized patients by comparing it with the ActiGraph wGT3X-BT accelerometer.

Conclusions: The PAM is a suitable movement sensor to validly measure the active minutes of hospitalized patients. Implementation of this device in daily care might be helpful to change the immobility culture in hospitals.
