At the time of hospitalization, it is essential to evaluate the general health status of a patient and to follow up the trends during therapy. Our work is focused on a set of tools for the measurement of patient activity. In this paper, we propose a few indicators of the patient activities of daily living, such as mobility, agitation, repartitions of stays, and displacements. As a result of this work, a diagnostic system was developed that could lead to a deeper knowledge of human activity rhythms in normal situations
