IPEQ is a cross-sectional survey for assessing low, basic and high-intensity physical activities. It is suitable for use in aging research including falls prevention trials.
IPEQ consists of twelve validated multiple choice questions. The results are graphically displayed at the completion of the test and a historical record for the current participant can be shown via graphs. The results are be stored on the device and can be emailed to a clinician and synced with a computer via iTunes.
IPEQ can be used to test your own exercise and activity levels over time and used to test the activity levels of participants in a research or clinical setting.
Results are exported in the easy-to-read comma separated value format. The summary files are natively supported by Microsoft Excel, SPSS Matlab and many other data analysis programs.
IPEQ has been developed based on extensive research and testing [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19474003] by Dr Kim Delebaere [http://www.neura.edu.au/research/themes/delbaere-group] and the Falls and Balance Research Group at NeuRA [http://www.neura.edu.au/research/facilities/falls-and-balance-research-group].
