Presentation / Conference
COOPER, K., SANI, S., CORRIGAN, L., MACDONALD, H., PRENTICE, C., VARETA, R., MASSIE, S. and WIRATUNGA, N. 2017. Accuracy of physical activity recognition from a wrist-worn sensor. Presented at the 2017 Physiotherapy UK conference and trade exhibition: transform lives, maximise independence and empower populations, 10-11 November 2017, Birmingham, UK.

The EU-funded project 'selfBACK' (http://www.selfback.eu) will utilise continuous objective monitoring of physical activity (PA) by a wrist-mounted wearable, combined with self-monitoring of symptoms and case-based reasoning. Together these will prov... Read More about Accuracy of physical activity recognition from a wrist-worn sensor..
