The winner of this year's competition for the student project of the year in context of the 10th anniversary of movisens has been determined!
Congratulations to Katharina Eckert from the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt.
The prize includes a "Starter Set for Ambulatory Assessment from movisens"!
With an activity sensor of the latest generation (Move 4) including accessories and a movisensXS Basic Bundle to perform an Experience Sampling study, Katharina is perfectly equipped for her next research project. In addition, Katharina will receive an individual half-day training and DataProcessing Service from movisens. The winning prize has a total value of around 2000 euros.
For her master's thesis, Katharina Eckert performed a study to find out what role work-related demands and resources play in the coping hypothesis of the Job Demands-Resources Model for work engagement and heart rate variability.
The collected data and findings during this study were also successfully published in the following paper by her supervisor Regina Schmid. „Teachers’ ambulatory heart rate variability as an outcome and moderating variable in the job demands-resources model“.
movisens congratulates on this important research work!
The COVID19 Pandemic forces scientists to look for new ways forward – In order to help scientists to continue research in times of the pandemic movisens organized a free webinar about the corresponding topic, which was a great success! movisens was very happy to welcome so many participants on November 25th.
For all those who could not attend the webinar we uploaded the webinar presentation "Research during a pandemic".
movisens is looking forward to welcome you again at the next webinar "Best practice session with movisens: The valid and reliable measurement of sedentary behavior". Sign up now!
Sing-up for webinar
movisens would like to use this year's Christmas campaign to make a positive contribution to environmental issues. For this purpose, we selected three sustainable projects that require support in the coming year. Our newsletter subscribers had the possibility to give their vote for one of three sustainable projects.
The first donation would go to the Nature Conservation Southern Palatinate Association which is committed to the restoration of the cultural landscape and the protection of the native biodiversity.
Secondly, we selected the regional group of the Economy for the common good in Karlsruhe. A donation would support the implementation of an ecological, social and economic balance sheet within regional small and medium-size enterprises.
Last but not least a donation for the organization “Stop Talking Start Planting” would support children planting a million trees in order to achieve a positive Co2 balance.
"Whoever sits longer dies younger"" and ""Sitting is the new smoking"".
These headlines come from recent behavioral and health related studies. Due to such conclusions sedentary behavior demands the attention of researchers, and the general public looks on with interest.
With the activity sensor Move 4 movisens provides a convenient way to track the activity levels of the participants, distinguish between sitting/lying and standing, determine the level of activity intensity and trigger interventions through the experience sampling app movisensXS.
In our webinar „Best practice session with movisens: The valid and reliable measurement of sedentary behavior movisens presents modern sensor solutions, and shares information from experienced researchers within the field of sedentary behavior. Enrol in our webinar to learn the best strategies to measure sedentary behavior.
