Getting Started

Congratulations on your Activinsights Band purchase! We hope the information below assists you as a quick guide in setting up your Activinsights Bands.

Installing the Activinsights Band software

To start using the Activinsights Band you will need to install the software to your PC for the first-time. This can be done as follows:

  1. Download and save the Activinsights Band Set Up file provided by Activinsights
  2. Double click the Activinsights Band Set Up icon & follow the step-by-step, pop-up instructions
    1. It is recommended to install and save the ‘Activinsights Band Setup file’ to a location other than your Desktop. We recommend ‘Documents’.
    2. Do not delete the additional folders that it creates
  3. Upon first set-up, it will ask for a configuration file. Please use the configuration(.cfg) file attached to the email from Activinsights
  4. Set a location for Activinsights Band patient database to be stored
    1. If you have multiple users in a single clinic you may choose to save this folder ‘Data Store Setup’ to a shared file location, so all relevant users can access the patient database storage folder.
    2. Once you have set up the first user you can set up additional users to use the same patient database. For data privacy and security, only the local patient database has capabilities to connect the directly identifying information with the patient.
  5. Once completed there will be an additional, new icon on the desktop called ‘Activinsights Band’ – this is the only software needed going forward.

Setting up a new patient

  1. Open the Activinsights Band software
  2. Select ‘patients, issue devices, reports’
  3. Select ‘New patient’
  4. Complete fields on patient details
    Please note that no directly identifying personal data leaves the healthcare professionals PC

  4. For first-time use select ‘Erase data without uploading’
  5. Then click ‘Temporary’ or ‘Permanent’ issue.
    This is dependent on whether you plan to use the same device on multiple participants, or just 1 participant for 1 year. If you are unsure it is best to select ‘temporary issue’
