This project is an exploratory study of levels of physical activity in boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy collected in the natural environment using actigraphy. Data collected by the Actigraph GT9x is used to develop algorithms to categorize the distribution of energy expenditure throughout the day. This study presents inaccuracies with using typical pediatric actigraphy algorithms in children with disability and the need to develop custom algorithms that correlate to our population.
