Accurate measurement of various human movement behaviors is essential in developing 24-h movement profiles. A dual-accelerometer system recently showed promising results for accurately classifying a broad range of behaviors in a controlled laboratory environment. As a progressive step, the aim of this study is to validate the same dual-accelerometer system in semi free-living conditions in children and adults. The efficacy of several placement sites (e.g., wrist, thigh, back) was evaluated for
