Resumen

Introduction: The work can be distinguished from each other by their energy expenditure and some of them could benefit health according to their characteristics. Objectives: Analyze and compare the characteristics of physical activity through accelerometry in working hours of women workers and administrative assistants working toilet at the University Viña del Mar. Methods: We performed a record 10 days hrs. for four days straight of energy expenditure through triaxial accelerometers to 8 auxiliary and 8 secretaries. It also makes Anthropometric and applies the IPAQ (International Physical Activity Questionnaire). Results: According to the IPAQ, both groups are in sedentary category, but the accelerometer determines that aids walk more steps, perform more sedentary breaks and do a physical activity level higher than secretaries. Discussion: There are jobs that can promote health, despite not meeting the standard considered "non sedentary", as in the case of ancillary amenities. Energy expenditure is greater in people who perform activities involving low-intensity exercise, which could help reduce levels of fat and maintain muscle mass of people.
