Triaxial accelerometer output predicts oxygen uptake in adults with Down syndrome.

Conclusions: Adults with DS have different V̇O2 to VM responses, and this appears due to their higher BMI. Predictability of V̇O2 from accelerometer output is better for hip- than wrist-worn accelerometers.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONOutput from a triaxial accelerometer has high potential in predicting the energy expenditure and classifying the intensity of physical activity and sedentary behavior in adults with Down syndrome.Accuracy of predicting energy expenditure from accelerometer output is better for hip- than wrist-worn triaxial accelerometers.The development of appropriate rehabilitation interventions that include physical activity for improving health and function in adults with Down syndrome requires accurate assessments of physical activity levels.

Children with Down syndrome are known to have intellectual disability and a wide variety of malformations, such as congenital heart defects, small ears, small mouths, and other physical findings, along with medical conditions such as hypothyroidism, hip dislocation, hearing loss, cataracts, atlantoaxial instability, and leukemia. In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updated its guidelines for health supervision of the child with Down syndrome to assist the pediatrician to care for the child with Down syndrome (https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/128/2/393).
