This article discusses the potential benefits of using wireless physical activity monitors in the context of adults who have HIV.
Primary Author Bio
Matthieu Dagenais BSc, MSc (Candidate). Matthieu completed his Undergraduate Degree in Medical Sciences (Honours) at Brock University and is finalizing his MSc Thesis in Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Toronto. His thesis focused on exploring the use of wireless physical activity monitors among adults living with HIV and assessing the measure properties (criterion and construct validity) of one particular wireless physical activity monitor, the Fitbit Zip to measure parameters of physical activity among adults living with HIV. His interests are primarily in the research fields of physical activity and promotion of physical activity, measurement of physical activity, adults living with episodic disabilities, and community-dwelling older adults. Matthieu will be applying for doctoral studies to continue his research that involves promoting physical activity and identifying if physical activity predicts positive body image among community-dwelling older adults. Matthieu is also interested in pursuing research in wireless physical activity monitors and how these devices may play a role in promoting physical activity among community dwelling older adults and adults living with episodic disabilities.
