Daily energy expenditure is the most influential component of daily energy expenditure hamburger
Our energy expenditure consists of basal metabolic rate, thermic effect of food, non-exercise activity energy expenditure and exercise energy expenditure.

Moreover, thermic effect of food is the energy expended to digest food, and is rather constant at 10% of total daily energy expenditure. During daily life we cannot considerably affect our basal metabolic rate and thermic effect of food directly with our behavior.

Why Fibion detects sitting and physical activities, while wrist- and waist-worn devices fail?
We get asked often how Fibion can detect different activity types just with a device you wear in your pocket. We tell that it is based on a neural networks analysis that takes into consideration magnitude, frequency band and patterns of acceleration in three-dimensional space. Well, that doesn’t help too much if you don’t have mathematics and physics as a hobby, so here is a blog post that explains why Fibion detects different physical activities much more accurately than other physical activity sensors.

The story of a seat: from a sign of authority to a sign of equality

Sitting is not only an "action". Historically sitting has been associated with power. In many languages, the verb "to sit" is even used as part of references to positions of power. The "sitting president", "chairman", or "chairman of the meeting" describe positions and power rather than the actual act of sitting. These examples also describe how the act and tradition...
