While discrete point analysis (DPA) (e.g. peak power) is by far the most common method of analyzing movement data, it may have significant limitations because it ignores the vast majority of a signal’s data. In response, there has been a small but growing use of methods, such as functional data analysis (FDA), which allow an investigation of the underlying structure of the continuous signal and may therefore provide a more powerful analysis. However, a direct comparison between DPA and FDA has not been previously reported.
