Evaluation of Arteriosclerosis Risk by Pulse Wave Velocity and Systolic Pressure

Arteriosclerosis is a lifestyle-related disease that is a cause of a cerebrovascular disease, and therefore evaluating a risk of arteriosclerosis was the object of this study. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) and systolic pressure (Sys) were measured in this study with the aim of making an index to evaluate the risk of developing arteriosclerosis. read more

How Many Days of Pedometer Use Reliably Predict the Annual Activity of the Elderly? The Nakanojo Study

We here apply the techniques of variance analysis and Fourier transformation to examine patterns of variability of daily step counts within the individual and within our test population; this has allowed us to make mathematical estimates of the number of days of sequenced, randomly timed and seasonally-timed observations needed to predict the annual habitual physical activity in healthy elderly people over a 365-day period. read more
