Fig. 5

Application to different wear-sites: Data from hip-worn monitors (10–12-year-old children) translated in the same way as the children’s data from wrist-worn accelerometers in Fig. 3. a Raw MX metrics ((clockwise) the most active 8 h of the day (M1/3DAY), 120 min (M120), 60 min (M60), 30 min (M30), 15 min (M15) and 5 min (M5)) and b standardised activity profiles of children with similar average acceleration (mid-tertile), but low, mid and high-intensity gradient. The standardised plot (b) for children with the highest intensity gradient is skewed to the left due to high levels of M5, M15 and M30 resulting in similar average acceleration despite low levels of M1/3DAY and M120. SD, standard deviation; Av accel, average acceleration; IG, intensity gradient; MVPA, moderate-to-vigorous physical activity
