Question description

I need you to help me paraphrase a paragraph in English, please?

Accelerometers have become the standard method for assessing physical activity (PA) in field-based research [1]. They are small, noninvasive, and easy to use, and they provide an objective indicator of PA over extended periods. They have been used almost exclusively for research, but advances in technology have led to the emergence of new consumer-based activity monitors designed for use by individuals interested in fitness, health, and weight control. Examples include the BodyMedia FIT (BMF), the Fitbit, the Jawbone Up (JU), the NikeFuel Band (NFB).The development of these consumer-based monitors has been driven in large part by the increased availability of low-cost accelerometer technology in the marketplace. The refinement of other technology (e.g., Bluetooth) and the increased sophistication of personalized social media applications have also spurred the movement. These new accelerometry-based monitors provide consumers with the ability to estimate PA and energy expenditure (EE) and track data over time on Web sites or through cell phone applications.
