Accuracy of the Accelerometer at Varying Walking Speedsa

  • a CI=confidence interval.

  • b Number of participants for whom the accelerometer counted zero steps for the walking trial. The accelerometer was positioned on each participant's nonparetic side on a waistband (lateral point [Accel-Waist]) and ankle strap (above the lateral malleolus [Accel-Ankle]).

  • c Absolute error, calculated as: [(Accelerometer steps – Actual steps)/Actual steps) × 100]. Calculation performed on individual data, so may not equate if calculation completed on group data presented above.

  • d Paired t test between Accel-Ankle and Accel-Waist; Bonferroni-corrected P values reported.
