CRDM and Activinsights are set to launch GENEActiv, a unique body-worn accelerometer that measures and tracks everyday physical activity. The technology records information both on physical activity undertaken by a person and their environment up to 100 times a second over a week. The data can be interpreted by software to provide information about sleep, activity levels, calories burned, posture, activity type, steps taken and biomechanics. This information can be used by researchers and health practitioners to determine population-level trends, monitor clinical trials and to assist in advising individuals on health, body fitness and wellbeing.
GENEActiv will be officially launched at icampam in Glasgow next month.
