Winner Student Project of the Year 2022
We've now selected the winner of the 2022 competition for student project of the year!
We congratulate Jakob Prechtl from Julius-Maximilian-University of Würzburg for winning the Student Project of the Year Award 2022 for his"BewiS - Bewegte inklusive Schule" project!
The prize includes a "Starter Set for Ambulatory Assessment from movisens"! With an activity sensor Move 4 including accessories and the analysis software DataAnalyzer, Jakob is perfectly equipped for her next research project. The winning prize has a total value of around 2000 euros.
This project "BewiS - Bewegte inklusive Schule" examined the physical condition of children and adolescents with an intellectual disability during various validated sport tests. The activity sensor Move 4 recorded the physical activity of pupils at support centres with a special focus on mental development during the morning lessons. The research approach presumes that this group of people does not move enough for various reasons, which can have an impact on their physical and mental health. Based on the results and in cooperation with the schools, a physical activity concept will be developed to promote the everyday activity in schools. The effects and results of these measures will be recorded and evaluated in the coming years through renewed tests using the Move 4 activity sensors.
movisens congratulates on this important research work!

movisens technologies used in current projects
The Heart and Diving
We're excited to support Giuseppe Di Tursi from Politecnico di Milano in his explorative research study "Cuore e Subaquea" on cardiac physiology during immersion with our ECG sensors. This is the first study of its kind focused on assessing the feasibility to monitor the Electrocardiogram and Seismocardiogram (i.e. the measurement of chest’s vibrations induced by cardiac mechanical activity) during a diving session. The main goal and the innovation of this investigation stands in evaluating and quantifying the spontaneous adaptation of myocardial mechanics to the underwater environment.
Now the study is published on "Divers for the Environment June 2022".
movisens training in presence
One of the first movisens trainings that could take place in presence again!
Our Coaching took place at the Department of Sports, Movement and Health at Universität Basel with Prof. Dr. Gerber (leader of the field Sport and Psychosocial Health) and some of his Team members and covered the use of our EcgMove 4 sensor.
We’re extremely thankful that so many interested scientists joined us to learn more about movisens and what our devices and software solutions can bring to their psycho-physiological research! Being given the chance to exchange experiences with movisens users all over the world is truly a gift for us.
If you also desire a movisens training session just get in touch anytime.
ISBNPA Xchange 2022
Supportive measures such as nutrition or physical activity during cancer treatment are becoming more and more important. Therefore, we're very happy to be part of the INTEGRATION Project which evaluates a treatment approach for ambulatory cancer therapy. The project is managed by the Uniklinik Köln and being carried out at eleven major German hospitals.
The results will contribute to further elucidation of the synergistic effects of physical activity and nutritional therapy as supportive measures during cancer treatment.
movisens promoting young scientists
These include our student projects, for which any young scientist in the field of Ambulatory Assessment, Mobile Monitoring, or Experience Sampling can apply with innovative research ideas. If we like the idea, the students are granted the opportunity to implement their study and project ideas with the help of free loan sensors and software. Each successfully completed student project can also participate in the competition for our "Student Project of the Year" award. The winner gains not only recognition, but also prizes to assist them in their future research.
In addition, movisens is an official partner of the DVS Young Scientists Workshop of the "Young Scientists" commission. Students receive informative support in the implementation of technological research solutions in addition to study planning and implementation through exclusive workshops and webinars and also through financial support.
movisens also supports the ASP Young Scientists Workshop as well as the Peer Mentoring Program of the Division of Biological Psychology and Neuropsychology of the DGPs in the form of scholarships and topic-specific lectures.
This year for the first time, movisens takes part in a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) project. The focus of this international co-operation is the promotion of young scientists and the improvement of teaching in Egypt. In this context, movisens will provide sensors and software for the planned summer school and hold a workshop.
