Classification of physical activity intensity based on Evenson accelerometer cut-off points and MET thresholds[18]
Physical activity intensity Accelerometer cut points Units of metabolic equivalent (MET)
Sedentary activity ≤ 100 counts/min METs < 1.5
Light physical activity > 100 counts/min 1.5 ≤ METs < 4
Moderate physical activity ≥ 2296 counts/min 4 ≤ METs < 6
Vigorous physical activity ≥ 4012 counts/min METs ≥ 6
