Abstract

In recent years, there has been much research and development of wearable devices using accelerometers for studying physical activity. Previously, we have described the development of the Posture and Activity Detector (PAD). After demonstrating success with PAD, we were motivated to improve the design by taking the device one step further and implementing all of these components on a single printed circuit board, adding a few additional features to make the system more flexible, and custom-designing an outer case. We have continued our efforts in improving PAD with respect to software development as well as making PAD more physically robust and mass producible. In this paper, the specifications for PAD will be outlined including its hardware and software components, and clinical research applications.
