Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The author describes a low-cost battery-powered instrument based on the c-mos Motorola MC146805 E2P microprocessor. In this instrument the input is sampled repetitively and compared with a table of values stored in memory, so that over time, a distribution of the sampled input is built up in 21 internal memory channels (20 channels plus 1 'over-range' channel). The program controlling the microprocessor can be adapted to suit different needs by simply changing the values stored in this table, and/or by changing the measuring period.
