Abstract

We investigated whether peer monitoring of daily activities among a group of workplace colleagues will help to improve their daily physical activities. Peer monitoring of actigraphic data did not affect significantly exercise energy consumption or step count. It rather reduced the time of physical activities >3 Mets and increased heart rate during working hours. Peer monitoring of actigraphic among workplace colleagues may cause complicated psychologic effects and may not improve physical activities.
