Monitoring changes in physical fitness is relevant in many conditions and groups of patients, but its determination demands substantial effort from the person, personnel and equipment. Besides that, present (sub) maximal exercise tests give a momentary fitness score, which depends on many (external) factors. Obtaining a fitness score based on measures gathered during longer periods of time and in natural conditions, like in daily life, would be an attractive alternative for the present methods. We performed an explorative lab-experiment to study the feasibility of fitness estimation during an activity commonly encountered in daily life; walking.
