Mobilités actives, villes et santé : vers de nouvelles approches de recueil des données d'activité physique

Abstract : Today, chronic and degenerative diseases represent the main cause of mortality ine the world. Most of these diseases were linked with the occidental current way of life and more particularly with the nutritional behavior ( food and physical activity). For example, in the physical activity field, encouraging active mobility ( walking and cycling ) has become a priority of public health policies. Characteristics of the urban environment can facilitate or limite active mobility. Modifying urban characteristics in order to support active mobility requires a precise and extended knowledge of these characteristics and their links with physical activity behavior. Therefore, one of these research challenges in this field is to assess active mobility in real-life context. In a pilot study, we tested multi-sensor methods using both GPS receivers and accelerometry-based movement counter. The purpose of the present study is to test out this mult-sensors method, to analyse the main results, to identify its strengths and weaknesses and to suggest future developments that could be provided.
