Sensors with a higher sampling rate produce higher-quality data. However, for more extended periods of data acquisition, as in the continuous monitoring of patients, the handling of the generated big data becomes increasingly complicated. This study aimed to determine the validity and reliability of low-sampling-frequency accelerometer (SENS) measurements in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Data were collected simultaneously using SENS and a previously validated sensor (Xsens) during two repetitions of overground walking. The processed acceleration signals were compared with respect to different coordinate axes to determine the test–retest reliability and the agreement between the two systems in the time and frequency domains. In total, 44 participants were included. With respect to different axes, the interclass correlation coefficient for the repeatability of SENS measurements was [0.93–0.96]. The concordance correlation coefficients for the two systems’ agreement were [0.81–0.91] in the time domain and [0.43–0.99] in the frequency domain. The absolute biases estimated by the Bland–Altman method were [0.0005–0.008] in the time domain and [0–0.008] in the frequency domain. Low-sampling-frequency accelerometers can provide relatively valid data for measuring the gait accelerations in patients with knee osteoarthritis and can be used in the future for remote patient monitoring.
