Abstract:
The studies conducted in this thesis have explored the physical activity levels (PAL) and temporal patterning of school children using a combination of objective and subjective measures. The primary objective of the work presented in this thesis was to develop a novel computer-based tool, which would permit an enhanced quality of data, and provide a convenient, accurate and precise method for assessing physical activity behaviour in large-scale population studies of primary school-aged children.
