Abstract
Pedometer accuracy and validity during moderate to vigorous activity was examined in youth with visual impairment. Fourteen children (6 males, 8 females) with visual impairment were observed and recorded during six activities at a summer camp while wearing a New Lifestyles 1000 pedometer and an ActiGraph GT1M accelerometer. Results indicate that there may be discrepancies in activity measurement of visually impaired youth when activity is measured with a pedometer versus an accelerometer.
