Summary This paper introduces an ambulatory energy expenditure technique using a single inertial sensor, and compares the performance with an industry standard metabolic measurement system. Wearable energy expenditure estimation systems are key instruments in athlete evaluation. The cost and size of traditional oxygen intake measurement systems (VO2 systems) limits usage of such technology in everyday athlete training and evaluation events. This project describes a method of estimating energy expenditure during treadmill exercise, from limb angular velocity and metabolic measurements. The feasibility of using such a system was evaluated using experimental results.
