Scientific journals on MOX accelerometry

The MOX is a validated and medically certified wearable accelerometer that delivers one of the most precise and consistent measurements for physical activity monitoring. It is the most advanced accelerometer development from Maastricht Instruments BV based on the earlier product versions, the CIRO Activity Monitor (CAM) and DAAFb which have been used for more than a decade to accurately measure physical activity in research and healthcare applications.
