Here is a list of
wearable logging devices that will capture data about movement or physiological measures for multiple days
. The data are analyzed when the devices are collected. Some of the sensors in the the
wireless monitors list
will also log data to a memory card.
Computes steps and BMR and stores 200 days of data.
measures activity (with 3D accelerator), digital nutrition protocol, calculates everery day energy balance, works in telemonitoring systems
3D-accelerator with "sunshine" reward, SW and upload-feedback-possibility to a portal
Waterproof activity logger.
Detects walking/running/jumping. Sends data periodically to a computer.
Device that appears to be somewhat like the SportBrain. Not yet available.
This is a device to be produced by Unilever, possibly released summer 2009, that will supposedly log raw 3-axis data for 8+ days on one charge at 60Hz. Waterproof to 10m. It has a very small form factor.
Hip worn step counter that can upload data to PC using USB docking station.
Actiwave is a family of physiological waveform recorders and includes an ECG monitor with 3-axis accelerometer.
BodyMedia makes an armband that measures skin temperature, galvanic skin response, heat flux and motion via a 2-axis accelerometer.
The Actigraph is an accelerometer data logger that is very commonly used in medical studies.
A heart rate, activity, IBI and HRV logger. Rechargeable and small. Validated and used in life science studies.
The Actical is an accelerometer data logger that is very commonly used in medical studies.
A watch form factor accelerometer primarily used in sleep studies.
A watch form factor (or necklace form factor) light intensity monitor that can record for up to 45 days. Can be synchronized with the Actiwatch.
Another watch that records for 180 days at 1-minute epochs.
Measures motion for 7+ days and classifies activity into periods spent sitting, standing, and walking. Worn with adhesive attached to the thigh.
Watch with 2-axis motion sensing (.012g) and light recording.
Ankle worn actigraphy device.
Captures about 40 days of steps data with one measurement per hour.
Device worn at night to detect sleep apnea.
A watch intended for consumers that uses motion to report a sleep quality measure after waking.
A watch intended for consumers to help them sleep and wake better using motion analysis to determine sleep/wakefullness periods and trigger the morning alarm. Data can be downloaded to a PC.
(Not sure about this one: developed in Waltham with DARPA funding. Sends data to PC)
Measurement for a variety of sports.
Newtest Exercise Monitors
Some type of pedometer/accelerometer that helps monitor bone and cholesterol.
From the website: "A small, non intrusive daily activity monitor measures caloric expenditure in real time. It
identifies and calculates your caloric expenditure when you sit, walk, run, play basketball, do aerobics or
many other activities. Sophisticated technology and algorhythms convert body movements into accurate
understandable energy expenditure."
Pam Actiivty Monitor
Hip-mounted accelerometer device stores up to 7 days of activity. USB link to PC for us with coaching software oriented toward the fitness consumer.
Tritrac-R3D (previous model of RT3)
Tri-axial accelerometer tracker the size of a pager.
Wired 3-axis acceleromter with gyro for in-lab data collections.
A tight-fitting shirt with embedded sensors: respiratory bands, ECG, posture and activity information. Optional: EEG/EOG, periodic leg movement, temperature, end tidal CO2, blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure and cough. The system can also include an electronic patient diary for self-report.
Wrist-worn activity monitor that logs accelerometer data and sends it via Bluetooth to an online behavior coaching system.
Wireless accelerometer for analyzing sports performance; also includes GPS, magnetometer, gyroscope, heart rate sensor
Hondata G Sensor
Hitachi Life Microscope
Watch format. Accelerometer, GSR, blood flow, temperature
Accelerometer, magnetometer, gyro, and temparature sensors that log locally and transmit to a custom access point.
Use the UP wristband and app to track your steps, distance, calories burned, pace, intensity level, active vs inactive time, GPS routes and more.
Hardware and mobile phone software for monitoring sleep apnea.
Plugged into a laptop or phone with USB host, it might be possible to use this for logging acceleration.
3D-accelerator, records activity data in the highest possible definition 50 to 200 Hz/sec
UVA wearable motion captures system with accelerometers and gyros.
