  1. Legend: Energy expenditure for all subjects expressed as mean and standard deviation(±SD) in seated and supine posture. The resting posture was compared to gentle jogger (GJ) in the same posture. There was a statistically significant increase from resting in oxygen consumption, MET, and energy expenditure (*p ˂ 0.001 GJ vs resting)
