Daily life physical activity is an important feature of human behavior and its measurement is important for a variety of medical disciplines including, behavioral science, psychology, and physiology. In this paper it is shown that ambulatory monitoring devices and advanced statistical physics methods provide the opportunity to quantify a number of physical activity features that are able to discriminate chronic disease conditions such as chronic pain.
