Validation of Commercial Activity Trackers in Everyday Life of People with Parkinson’s Disease

Maintaining physical activity is an important clinical goal for people with Parkinson’s disease (PwPD). We investigated the validity of two commercial activity trackers (ATs) to measure daily step counts. We compared a wrist- and a hip-worn commercial AT against the research-grade Dynaport Movemonitor (DAM) during 14 days of daily use.
