Package MIMSunit details

Algorithm to Compute Monitor Independent Movement Summary Unit (MIMS-Unit)

The MIMS-unit algorithm is developed to compute Monitor Independent Movement Summary Unit, a measurement to summarize raw accelerometer data while ensuring harmonized results across different devices. It also includes scripts to reproduce results in the related publication (John, D., Tang. Q., Albinali, F. and Intille, S. (2019) ).
