Application to different wear-sites. Data from thigh-worn monitors. 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 for two example adult participants (P1 and P2) with similar average acceleration but differing intensity gradients. P1 has a low-intensity gradient, with comparatively high levels of M1/3DAY and M120 (b), P2 has a high-intensity gradient characterised by a greater area on the left-hand side of the radar plot. This results in a similar average acceleration. Av accel, average acceleration; IG, intensity gradient; MVPA, moderate-to-vigorous physical activity
