set - 1 Task 8 - Delivery of physical activity logger
with the reader and software: - Set to record physical activity and measurement of light intensity type Actiwatch (AW2) (or equivalent) - 1 set.
The Positional Activity Logger Version 1 (a), is a lightweight, battery-operated, automated position sensor, which measures the frequency and duration of uptime versus downtime (sitting or lying) (Eldridge et al 2003b).
Participants wore the activity logger for three consecutive days, including a weekend day (or public holiday).
Physical activity was measured as uptime using the Positional Activity Logger Version 1.
The activity logger reset itself during data collection from two participants, resulting in data being lost.
One participant requested that the activity logger be removed so that she could have a bath.

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.
