Abstract

Date Presented 4/9/2016

This study explains the use of accelerometry to objectively monitor upper-extremity movement in everyday life and presents criterion data of normal participants. Comparability of Actigraph Bluetooth® Smart wGT3X-BT and FitBit® Flex allows greater access to an affordable instrument for measuring outcomes.
