Data collection was performed at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) at Headley Court. This research was a collaboration between the Academic Department of Military Rehabilitation (ADMR) and the Department for Health at the University of Bath as part of a PhD programme. The PhD aimed to investigate the impact of exercise rehabilitation in a UK military rehabilitation centre of unilateral and bilateral amputees. Part of this process is to assess the energy expenditure of these amputee groups at home and during rehabilitation. As physical activity monitors have not been validation in amputees before, the aim of this study was to validate an accelerometer that could accurately predict physical activity energy expenditure during free living.

Dataset abstract

These data were collected to support a study that assessed the influence of the anatomical placement of a tri-axial accelerometer on the prediction of physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) in traumatic lower-limb amputees during walking in order to develop valid population-specific prediction algorithms. The dataset consists of indirect calorimetric data and accelerometer data collected from participants whilst walking on a treadmill at range of velocities and performing an upper body exercise protocol on the arm crank ergometer at incremental speeds with a fixed resistance.
