What's the longest period of time other researchers have been able to ask participants to wear an ActivPAL. We are concerned the IRB will deny the request based on participant burden.

We were successfully able to get a proposal accepted that had participants wearing the device for 3 weeks.

For participants who wore the device for 3-weeks, was compliance fairly good? Any participant complaints?

We were able to get high compliance and participants did not have an issue with wearing the device. They came in weekly to change the device to a new one and were instructed to switch legs at each visit.
