DataAnalyzer – Sensor Data Analysis
The movisens DataAnalyzer processes raw sensor data to calculate physiological parameters with a selectable output interval in just a few clicks.
The DataAnalyzer extracts the selected parameters into .csv format, allowing researchers to delve deeper and process the data further in Excel or SPSS. For a big picture overview, our pdf reports provide a great summary of the key information extracted from the sensor in easy to read charts and tables.
The software package works with raw sensor data saved in the unisens format, and complements our range of physiological sensors (Move 4, EcgMove 4, LightMove 4, EdaMove 4). The DataAnalyzer also allows the batch processing of an entire study cohort, automatically displaying the available parameters based on the sensor type, and wear position.
As with our sensors, the DataAnalyzer is a one-off purchase with no renewal or subscription fees. Once you pay for it, you own it. It comes standard with algorithms that allow the calculation of physical parameters derived from the data gathered by the class leading accelerometers featured in all of our sensors.
The following additional modules are available for individual purchase:
- Energy Expenditure
- Electrodermal Activity
- Ambient Light
- Physical Activity Metrics
- Batch analyze complete studies with one click
- Selectable output parameters
- Configurable output intervals
- Optimized output that's suitable for further processing (Excel, SPSS)
- Integrated generator of informative PDF reports
- Analysis of activity, ECG and EDA measurement data
- Activity recognition and energy expenditure calculation
- Heart rate and heart rate variability
- Electrodermal activity
- Research of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)
- Behavioral monitoring
