As GENEActiv outputs raw data, you are able to carry out analysis using any type of software, including Matlab & R free packages. You can also use Excel macro reports; we provide some standard reports free for you to use – you can download these from our sister site, https://open.geneactiv.org. In order to use them please follow the instructions below:
- Download the data from your device using the GENEActiv software (data extractor tab – see instruction manual for more details). This will talk you through how to covert and analyse the data. Once you have converted the data into a .csv epoch file, open up the Excel macro report
- Click ‘Import data’ (this is the data you will have downloaded off the device) and insert the .csv epoch file (e.g. 60 seconds) and click Ok.
- Click ‘Generate graphs’. Once the graphs have been generated, you will see a number of tabs along the bottom row of the Excel page – e.g. (‘Front page’, Day graphs, ‘Night graphs’), each displaying the relevant graph.
- The report has now been generated and is able to be printed.
