Abstract: In this paper we present a new tool, which enables the study of the dose-response relationship in real time, through the assessment of the level of physical activity using METs, and applicable in exercise therapy. A validation protocol for METs algorithm was performed, and METs values were obtained for various real-world and lifestyle and sporting activities. These values were compared with the results from the state-of-the-art work in the field for the same activities. Results have proven to be accurate, according to the model by Crouter, allowing the assessment of physical activity level. Our tool is intended for practitioners working addressing exercise activities and exercise therapy in a wide range of areas, one of which is psychology. According to the obtained results, the base hardware holds comparable performance with the advantage of being wearable and wireless, and thus convenient to be used on the daily monitoring of the patients daily routines.
