movisens offers workshops in the field of ambulatory assessment/mobile monitoring to researchers and research groups. Featuring a theoretical and practical component, the workshops allow researchers to undertake basic training in the best methods of gathering physiological and/or experience sampling data, and provide a great opportunity to clarify the important issues they may face in their upcoming study.

Our next due dates:

11.03.2020, 10:00 – 17:00: Collection of Physical Activity data

01.04.2020, 10:00 – 17:00: Measurement and Analysis of ECG signals, Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability

22.04.2020, 10:00 – 17:00: Collection of Electrodermal Activity data

27.05.2020, 10:00 – 17:00: Multimodal and Interactive Ambulatory Assessment


If you'd like to take part in one of our workshops, please email info@movisens.com

Please note that this round of workshops will be conducted in German. If you're interested in workshops in English, please get in touch and we can inform you when the next English based workshops will take place.

  • Practical component

The number of participants for each workshop is limited to 12. The workshop costs 150 EUR per participant, which includes the workshop fee, training materials and catering.

For the practical component we provide each participant with a sensor that they'll use to carry out a test measurement. The participants need to bring their own Laptop (Windows operating system).
