The ACTIGRAPH, also known as an activity monitor, detects activity by sensing motion via an internal accelerometer.

This small lightweight single axis activity-measuring instrument can be worn on the wrist, waist, or ankle to record physical activity.

The ACTIGRAPH product line has an excellent reputation based on demonstrated reliability, accuracy, and technical support. The product line has been the baseline for many studies and is considered the 'gold standard' for the industry in the Sports
and Exercise Science market. One of the great advantages to using the ACTIGRAPH is that it is a shelf item, which means that no research is needed. There have been many validation studies done in support of the ACTIGRAPH.

Some uses of the ACTIGRAPH include the study of circadian rhythms, estimation of energy expenditure, assessment of athletic and rehabilitative programs, sleep research, and time and motion studies.

Benefits include
ˇ Monitors free-ranging individuals during the course of normal activity.
ˇ Daily activity profile
ˇ Percent of time spent at different activity levels
ˇ Peak performance
ˇ Time spent resting
ˇ Maximum duration of continuous activity

BP71: Nylon Pouch
The pouch is intended to hold the Actigraph on a persons belt, the ribbon loops around the belt and is held by Velcro™. The pouch provides a layer of protection to the Actigraph as it hides it, making less noticeable. The Pouch is stocked in Black, but many different colors and trim can be made, making more inviting for children to wear.

BP75 Padded Nylon Pouch
This pouch is slightly larger than the BP71 because of added padding. It is design to protect the Actigraph if falls onto hard surface or if dropped while putting on or taking off.
