Project:

The development of a new cloud internet based system for the measurement of physical activity and sleep.

Team:


  • Mike Catt

  • Kirstie Anderson

Aim:

To develop a new internet based platform to accurately measure daily energy expenditure and sleep in free living people.

Research Overview:

Physical activity and sleep are fundamental to health and well being. Low daily energy expenditure, associated with frequent bouts of inactivity, and inadequate sleep are associated with the development of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A new system of physical activity and sleep measurement will be validated against gold standard reference methods.

Research Importance:

This study will provide an accurate assessment of key lifestyle variables linked to the development of obesity, diabetes and CVD.
