The cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) is a noninvasive assessment that provides valuable insight into the health and functioning of the pulmonary, cardiovascular and muscular systems. A number of key variables are obtainable from the CPET which reflect varying degrees of pathophysiology and can provide valuable information on the cardiopulmonary function of a child.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to provide RT3 accelerometer thresholds to distinguish nonambulation from ambulation, as well as distinguish between low, moderate, and vigorous intensity ambulation in Chinese children. Methods: Thirty-five 8- to 12-yr-olds completed a laboratory-based experiment to calibrate the RT3 device across a range of intensities. Oxygen uptake during sedentary tasks and ambulation was aligned, with corresponding RT3 output, to one of four intensity categories (sede...
