  1. Legend: Energy expenditure for female and male 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 oxygen consumption, MET and energy expenditure in both females and male subjects (*p ˂ 0.001 GJ vs resting; **p ˂ 0.01; †p ˃ 0.05)
