Abstract:
The accurate measurement of physical activity in children and adolescents is very difficult and there is currently no ideal method for use in this area of research that measures all facets of physical activity behaviour. The primary aim of this study was to develop and evaluate an Internet-based self-report, the ActiLog. Secondary aims were to evaluate the use of heart rate monitoring and accelerometry for measuring physical activity in adolescents.
