Fibion is the only research device that has been validated to track accurately sitting, standing, physical activity types and energy expenditure. The tracked physical activity types are slow walking, brisk walking, cycling, and high-intensity activity.
Fibion has also been shown to be valid categorizing physical activity into light (LPA), moderate (MPA), and vigorous (VPA) intensity physical activity.
Advanced analysis algorithms and positioning of the device on the thigh instead of the waist or wrist gives considerably more accurate results especially related to sedentary behaviours and low-intensity physical activities.
In addition to scientific accuracy, Fibion provides automatically produced and easy-to-understand reports for research participants.

As an Exercise Physiologist specialising in Inactivity I am always on the lookout for different, reliable and compact instruments to collect valid and interesting data. I recently purchased a Fibion to collect data on sitting time and to measure time at different MET levels. I was very impressed with the reliability of the Fibion and the accurate measures it produced.

Fibion is an easy-to-use product. Sport instructor students have been using Fibion with customers as part of their studies and feedback has been positive throughout. Fibion analysis fits especially well for customers that are doing seated work. We have been able to make them realise to have breaks throughout the day and to change their everyday activity routines.

I have very positive experiences about Fibion. The report is good and practical, and customers understand it well when we are going through it in the consultation. I have also liked the organisation specific well-being questionnaire and summary. We have gone those through and been thinking together whether we could find from there a clear goal for the whole work community to decrease sitting or increase physical activity.
