selfBACK is an mHealth decision support system used by patients for the self-management of Lower Back Pain. It uses Human Activity Recognition from wearable sensors to monitor user activity in order to measure their adherence to prescribed physical activity plans. Different feature representation approaches have been proposed for Human Activity Recognition, including shallow, such as with hand-crafted time domain features and frequency transformation features; or, more recently, deep with Convolutional Neural Net approaches. The different approaches have produced mixed results in previous work and a clear winner has not been identified. This is especially the case for wrist mounted accelerometer sensors which are more susceptible to random noise compared to data from sensors mounted at other body locations e.g. thigh, waist or lower back. In this paper, we compare 7 different feature representation approaches on accelerometer data collected from both the wrist and the thigh. In particular, we evaluate a Convolutional Neural Net hybrid approach that has been shown to be effective on image retrieval but not previously applied to Human Activity Recognition. Results show the hybrid approach is effective, producing the best results compared to both hand-crafted and frequency domain feature representations by a margin of over 1.4% on the wrist.
