Abstract

Few studies have measured physical activity (PA) levels of adults with intellectual disabilities using both objective and subjective methods, but none included individuals with profound intellectual disabilities. To inform effective measurement of PA across the disability spectrum, this study explored: the feasibility of measuring PA levels using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire‐short version (IPAQ‐s) and a wrist‐worn 7‐day accelerometer; examined the level of agreement between instruments/raters; and established the recruitment rate. From the literature reviewed, no study has investigated these issues.
