EcgMove 4 – ECG and Activity Sensor

As part of the new sensor generation, the EcgMove 4 activity sensor combines the previous benefits of the proven EcgMove 3 with the 4th generation enhancements, allowing the movisens team to address a wide range of researchers’ needs, implement their requests, and further enhance the quality of the sensors. Thus, the EcgMove 4 strengthens it’s position as the go to device for researchers who care about high quality ECG and Activity data.

The 4th sensor generation offers researchers numerous advantages, including:

  • New design for optimal handling: The improved case offers a sleek design aesthetic offering many practical advantages. The waterproof and dirt-repellent housing coupled with the improved carrying systems make the sensors simpler, more versatile and safer to use.
  • More data collection capabilities: Thanks to the integration of the latest technologies, the 4th generation sensors now incorporate a Gyroscope (Angular Rate Sensor).
  • Improved analysis possibilities: Our highly acclaimed acceleration sensor also received an overhaul, and now records the measurement data at an even higher resolution. Consequently, we’ve achieved significant improvements in the obtainable results, especially in the analysis of sedentary behavior and non-wear detection.
  • Increased data retention: A new Bluetooth buffer ensures the preservation of data during disconnection, with the buffered data transferred upon reconnection; thus guaranteeing a continuous data recording at all times.
  • Broader research applications: Already a class leader in quality data acquisition for many research areas, these improvements expand the EcgMove 4‘s research capabilities. All the while remaining the best choice for researcher’s requiring high quality ECG and physical activity data.

The EcgMove 4 follows on from the EcgMove 3 as the most precise sensor for the measurement of ECG combined with physical activity. Capable of long term ambulatory recordings without the inconvenience of cables. Through the parallel recording of the ECG and Activity Signals (ECG, 3D Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometric Air Pressure, and Temperature), the EcgMove 4 offers a rich treasure trove of data for the detailed analysis of the functioning of the heart, the autonomic nervous system, and additionally behavior and activity. Whilst recording the raw data stream, the sensor can also analyze certain parameters live on the sensor and transmit the results via Bluetooth smart interface, e.g. to a smartphone.

The sensor is optimized for use in scientific studies and interactive ambulatory assessment. The new attachment systems offer you great flexibility in use and a high wearing comfort for the study participant, with the choice of adhesive electrodes or our acclaimed dry electrode textile chest belt. This leads to improved compliance, higher data volume and quality, and thus reduces the effort of carrying out a study and reduces costs.

Combined with our Analysis-Software DataAnalyzer allows the simple calculation of parameters such as Heart Frequency, Heart Rate Variability, Activity Class, Steps, Energy Expenditure and Metabolic Equivalent of Task (MET).
