fitness tracker

(redirected from activity logger)

fitness tracker

A wrist-worn device that can detect some combination of walking steps, running distance, heart rate, sleep patterns and swimming laps. Fitness bands interact via Bluetooth with an app in a mobile device that configures the device and downloads the wearer's activity data. Most smartwatches support some number of physical actions via a health app; however, dedicated trackers tend to monitor more functions. See smartwatch.

A recent innovation in the quantification of upright mobilisation has been the development of the Positional Activity Logger (a).
Within 24 hours of surgery, and prior to commencement of upright mobilisation, an activity logger was attached to the thigh where it recorded data continuously for the first four postoperative days before being removed on the morning of Day 5.
The battery-operated activity logger (90 x 54 x 18 mm) was adhered to the lateral aspect of the right thigh and recorded uptime when the thigh was in a position greater than 45 degrees to the horizontal axis (ie, during standing and walking).
On each day the activity logger was worn, participants were asked to describe their pain relief during mobilisation as adequate or inadequate.
