Daily energy expenditure is the most influential component of daily energy expenditure hamburger

Our energy expenditure consists of basal metabolic rate, thermic effect of food, non-exercise activity energy expenditure and exercise energy expenditure. Basal metabolic rate is affected by body size, gender, age and some illnesses. A larger body expends more energy, and basal metabolic rate decreases while we age. Moreover, thermic effect of food is the energy expended to digest food, and is rather constant at 10% of total daily energy expenditure. During daily life we cannot considerably affect our basal metabolic rate and thermic effect of food directly with our behavior.

Why Fibion is the most accurate sensors to measure energy expenditure of daily activities?

This blog post explains what technological differences in the Fibion device provide it considerably better starting point for accurate energy expenditure estimation than other devices on the market (be it consumer or research device). Moreover, we show the same in numbers based on a validation study.

Why Fibion detects sitting and physical activities, while wrist- and waist-worn devices fail?

We get asked often how Fibion can detect different activity types just with a device you wear in your pocket. We tell that it is based on a neural networks analysis that takes into consideration magnitude, frequency band and patterns of acceleration in three-dimensional space. Well, that doesn’t help too much if you don’t have mathematics and physics as a hobby, so here is a blog post that explains why Fibion detects different physical activities much more accurately than other physical activity sensors.

Our work days as caged monkeys: effects of work on energy expenditure

Work has traditionally been a significant part of our lives and our personal identity. Professions have been passed on from fathers to sons for generations, while physical labor and handcrafts have been highly valued. At the same time, physical labor has played a significant role in our daily energy expenditure. Think about how men used to work long hours in the woods in the middle of winter with a frame saw and an axe with their flannel shirts crusted with frost from their

Has passive lifestyle caught children? A case study of super active 5-year-old

Only a few decades ago people walked or biked to work and school. Children played outside and climbed trees rather than spending their evenings in front of the screen.

Perhaps this sounds like a romanticized story to you - and that’s what it is these days. Few of us have realized how quick and dramatic the change has been. Our environment and entertainment have become digital, virtual, and busy in just a blink of an eye. Unfortunately, it has also become passive.

Energy Metabolism: Move Only When You Must, Rest When You Can

In order for us to better understand how our bodies function, we should examine it with historical perspective regarding the physical demands of the surrounding environment. Physical activity was required in order to find food, which is essential for survival. As successful hunting was never ensured, alternating times of feast and famine were normal in ancient jungle camps. Similarly, the volume of physical activity fluctuated with hunting success. In order to survive these

The story of a seat: from a sign of authority to a sign of equality

Sitting is not only an "action". Historically sitting has been associated with power. In many languages, the verb "to sit" is even used as part of references to positions of power. The "sitting president", "chairman", or "chairman of the meeting" describe positions and power rather than the actual act of sitting. These examples also describe how the act and tradition of sitting have been associated with social status as well as the physical act of supporting our bodies. At

A former top ice hockey player Semir Ben-Amor wants to coach about the importance of everyday activity

“Many people may have a wrong image of me. Against the expectations, I do not shout to players and I am not the same kind of tough guy as a coach as I was as a player. Instead, I want measured data to support my decision making and I am guiding players individually towards healthier lifestyle”.
