Title
Direct and indirect measurement of physical activity in older adults: a systematic review of the literature
Published in
International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, December 2012

Abstract

Due to physiological and cognitive changes that occur with aging, accurate physical activity (PA) measurement in older adults represents a unique challenge. The primary purpose of this study was to systematically review measures of PA and their use and appropriateness with older adults. A secondary aim was to determine the level of agreement between PA measures in older adults.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 December 2012.
All research outputs
#1,617,019
of 10,202,788 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
#674
of 1,183 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#55,906
of 305,995 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
#24
of 44 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 10,202,788 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 84th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,183 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 19.9. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 305,995 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 44 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
