Einleitung

Zur Erhebung der körperlichen Aktivität in epidemiologischen Studien existieren unterschiedliche Methoden, wobei eine präzise Erfassung in größeren Studienpopulationen eine Herausforderung darstellt. Mithilfe moderner Technologien wie der Pedometrie oder Akzelerometrie ist die Anwendung objektiver Verfahren möglich. Alternativ oder in Kombination bieten sich Aktivitätsfragebögen und Aktivitätsprotokolle an. Letztere stellen in webbasierter Form ein erfolgsversprechendes Zukunftspotenzial dar.

Summary

There are various methods to assess physical activity in epidemiologic studies. However, the precise measurement of physical activity in large study populations poses a challenge. Modern technology using pedometers and accelerometers enables objective physical activity assessments. Physical activity questionnaires and physical activity diaries can be employed alone or in combination with objective methods. Web-based physical activity assessments bear considerable future potential.
