Abstract

Measurement of the physical activity level of an individual with an injury or illness can provide an indication of health status and rehabilitation progress. Objective measurement of free-living physical activity through the use of a pedometer or an accelerometer is relatively inexpensive, and it controls for many confounding variables that may affect other outcome measures currently used in athletic training research. Furthermore, such measurement may provide clinicians with information that supports a more informed decision about an athlete's readiness for return to participation after injury. © 2008 Human Kinetics - Att.
