movisens is proud to be the first company to provide a sensor trigger for Experience Sampling and Ecological Momentary Assessment studies. Now you can implement innovative research ideas by coupling one of our class leading activity sensors with movisensXS – the intuitive and comprehensive experience sampling platform – to capture truly insightful data.
The research grade sensors analyze physiological parameters in real time and transmit the results via Bluetooth Smart. This allows individually configurable algorithms to trigger forms in movisensXS based on changes in physiology that the researcher wants to examine. By implementing of one of the existing algorithms, the detection of physiological changes, such as high activity levels, sedentary behavior, heart rate variability (RMSSD), and heart rate thresholds (among many others), can act as a trigger within your EMA/ESM study.
You have the freedom to select different algorithms for each individual participant, and also further customize the existing algorithms within groups. There’s a range of existing algorithms developed for specific research projects, and as such, provide a small sampling of what is possible with this innovative technology.
If you have an existing algorithm that you would like to utilize, or an idea for a physiological marker that you would like to have as a trigger, we can work with you to implement this idea and develop your study.
