Advantages and Disadvantages of Different Physical Activity Measurement Technologies

Measurement Technology

Why Fibion detects sitting and physical activities, while wrist- and waist-worn devices fail?

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.
