EAWOP 2017

We're happy to announce that movisens will be jetting over to Ireland on the 17th of May for the European Associaton of Work and Organizational Psychology conference. The three day EAWOP 2017 congress takes place in Dublin from the 17th to the 20th, and the theme in focus is "Enabling Change Through Work & Organizational Psychology".

Lectures, presentations and workshops provide the framework to unveil new insights, discoveries and directions for future research, making this event a must attend for anyone working/conducting researching in the field of organizational psychology.

You'll find us on the exhibition floor, where we'll introduce you to the new psycho-physiological measuring methods and equipment that we've developed, and their innovative applications within this field.

Aging and Cognition conference April 20-22, 2017

We're happy to announce that we're a Silver Partner helping to support the 4th International "Aging & Cognition" Conference in Zurich, Switzerland. The conference (also the 2nd Conference of the European Cognitive Ageing Society) will bring together researchers from all over the world to discuss the subject of cognition, cognitive neuroscience for healthy aging, and also interventions aimed towards mitigating age related cognitive decline.

In our booth we'll be discussing the use of cognitive tests in experience sampling and ambulatory assessment, so make sure to drop by and learn about our latest developments in the field.

New sensor EdaMove 3 now available

The EdaMove sensor emerges fresh from the lab with its version 3 upgrade complete. The same high quality data you’ve come to trust and respect, now capable of interacting with our cloud based experience sampling platform movisensXS.

Ambulatory Assessment workshop with Prof. Ulrich Ebner-Priemer

movisens, together with Prof. Dr. Ulrich Ebner-Priemer will hold a workshop on Ambulatory Assessment in Karlsruhe on the 6th and 7th of April 2017. The ubiquitous nature of smartphones allows electronic diaries to be increasingly useful in psychological research. This data collection method, referred to as Experience Sampling Method or Ecological Momentary Assessment, can also collect physiological data to complement and refine the subjective parameters.

The workshop seeks to provide the participants an overview of the possibilities of ambulatory assessments, including the difficulties and key considerations. The theory part of the workshop covers the background principles from a scientific point of view. Subsequently, participants will have an opportunity to program and design their own e-diary studies in movisensXS under the guidance of the movisens team. A brief evaluation of the data using SPSS will follow.

movisens looks forward to seeing you all at the workshop, where we can discuss the exciting new topics and developing field of Ambulatory Assessments.

New White Paper Activity Algorithms

Our very own Florian Richert crafted a fascinating white paper about the difficulties of accurately assessing energy expenditure using actigraphy. He details the history of interpreting accelerometer data, highlighting the advantages of a transparent method of calculation and the importance of capturing raw data in the sensor. Focusing on the quest to accurately estimate energy expenditure, Florian delves in to the existing research and reveals the weaknesses in the current approach and the way forward to develop a sustainable method of calculating parameters from accelerometer data as newer and better algorithms are devised.

The paper carves through the different existing methodologies and presents solid recommendations for integrating high quality accelerometer data in future research. In particular, utilising physiological data to assist in capturing psychological data in an ambulatory setting.

We hope you enjoy it.
