Upper-limb activity in adults: Referent values using accelerometry

Ryan R. Bailey, MSOT, OTR/L; Catherine E.
Lang, PT, PhD

Veterans who experience impairment to the arms after an injury or illness can benefit from rehabilitation. Our research provides a value of average amount of arm activity that occurs in adults that was obtained from a large sample of adults without arm impairment. We also explored the relationship between arm activity and conditions known to affect physical activity that could also affect arm activity. This information can be used by patients and therapists to set outcome goals and to track progress during rehabilitation of the arms.
