An ActivPAL device measures free-living activity and can record activity continually for more than 7 days.  To allow for 24/7 activity monitoring the ActivPAL should have a waterproof covering.  This can be done quickly (in less that a minute) and easily using a heat sealer device.   

You will need:

• 1 ActivPAL
• 7.5x9cm Medical Grade Layflat Tubing
• Heat Sealant Device
• Rectangle of paper 3x5cm to identify the device, give orientation and contact information
