Abstract

What did I do?
The overarching aim of this PhD was to characterise and profile children’s physical activity movement quality. Further, chapter specific aims were, (1) to
verify the validity and reliability of accelerometry in a mechanical and laboratory setting, (2) to characterise and profile movement quality according
to body mass index (BMI) and (3) to characterise and profile movement quality during recess and free play.
