Ambulatory Assessment (AA) describes a class of methods for data assessment (and interventions) in near real-time and in the everyday life of humans to enable ecologically valid findings.

AA comprises Wearable Technologies (WT) such as physical activity monitoring (e.g., via Accelerometry), physiological function assessment (e.g., via Mobile Electro-Cardiogram), contextual sensing (e.g., via geolocation tracking), and self-reporting via e-diaries (e.g., Ecological Momentary Assessment [EMA]. For example, these data allow scientists to gain in-depth insights into within-person associations between physical behavior (on physical activity, sedentary behavior, and sleep) and its biological, physiological, as well as psychological correlates.

Since WT and AA enables researchers to capture physical activity, sport and exercise “as it is” (real-time, real life, etc.) and within a very broad range of research applications, the SIG aims to provide a basis, for example, to combine expertise, to develop shared definitions and to further develop and validate WT and AA in the field of movement and exercise.
