Feasibility, Reliability, and Validity of the MotionWatch 8 to Evaluate Physical Activity Among Older Adults With and Without Cognitive Impairment in Assisted Living Settings

This study tested the feasibility, reliability, and validity of the MotionWatch 8 among assisted living residents with and without cognitive impairment. Data from the Dissemination and Implementation of Function Focused Care in Assisted Living Using the Evidence Integration Triangle study were used. The sample included 781 individuals from 85 facilities with a mean age of […]

A pragmatic approach to the comparison of wrist-based cutpoints of physical activity intensity for the MotionWatch8 accelerometer in children

Background A variety of wearable monitors are available for objectively assessing physical activity but there is a lack of established values for the activity intensity of MotionWatch8 (MW8) and a similar lack of studies on comparability across devices. Our study aimed to establish activity intensity cutpoints for the MW8 accelerometer in children, which are necessary […]

Revisiting the MotionWatch 8: Calibrating cut-points for measuring physical activity and sedentary behaviour among adults with stroke

Reduced moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and increased sedentary behavior (SB) are common following stroke, which can limit stroke recovery and contribute to greater cognitive decline. Hence, the MVPA and SB of adults with stroke should be measured concurrently using objective methods. One currently available method for objectively measuring MVPA and SB is the MotionWatch8© (MW8). […]

Measurement of Physical Activity: Motionwatch 8 Advantages and Disadvantages

Subjective reports of physical activity are often biased due to recall and social desirability. Objective data is limited by what the device measures. The purpose of this study was to consider the feasibility, reliability and validity of the MotionWatch 8 among older adults in assisted living. A total of 249 residents were recruited from 26 […]

Physical activity and function in assisted living residents

The purpose of this study was to consider the feasibility, reliability, and validity of MotionWatch 8. A total of 249 residents were recruited from 26 assisted living settings. Data collection included demographics, comorbidities, function (Barthel Index), physical activity (MotionWatch 8), and falls. The mean age of participants was 86.86 (SD = 7.0), the majority were […]

Validation of MotionWatch8 accelerometer intensity cutpoints in children

Objective. Excess body weight in children has become a serious public health concern worldwide. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) demonstrated that childhood obesity has tripled since the 1970s in the United States. To prevent childhood obesity, the CDC recommends that children achieve 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day. […]

Measuring physical activity in older adults using motionwatch 8 actigraphy: how many days are needed?

Evidence suggests sleep and physical activity (PA) are associated with each other and dementia risk. Thus, identifying reliable methods to quantify sleep and PA concurrently in older adults is important. The MotionWatch 8© (MW8) wrist-worn actigraph provides reliable estimates of sleep quality via 14 days of measurement; however, the number of days needed to monitor […]

Reliability and validity testing of the MotionWatch 8 in older adults. Journal of nursing measurement

Background and Purpose: The purpose of this pilot study was to test the reliability and validity of the MotionWatch 8 with older adults. Methods: Participants wore the MotionWatch 8 for 3 days, completed a diary of activities and the Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) scale. Results: Evidence of reliability and validity was supported because […]

Measuring physical activity in older adults: calibrating cut-points for the MotionWatch 8

Given the world’s aging population, the staggering economic impact of dementia, the lack of effective treatments, and the fact a cure for dementia is likely many years away – there is an urgent need to develop interventions to prevent or at least delay dementia’s progression. Thus, lifestyle approaches to promote healthy aging are an important […]
