R package stepmetrics
In collaboration with the University of Alabama (US), I am happy to present the stepmetrics R package.
The goal of the stepmetrics R package is to calculate step and cadence metrics from aggregated step counts per epoch. These metrics include the total volume of steps per day, time accumulated in predefined cadence bands, cadence peaks, and moderate-to-vigorous intensity derived from cadence-based thresholds. All of these outcomes can be modified by the users.
I built the package with the intention to make it useful for working with ActiGraph devices, so a number of ActiGraph data formats are allowed (including agd and csv with different formats).
