Movesense Sensor Platform

Movesense is an open development environment for fast and cost-effective creation of wearable sensor solutions. It is developed by the Finnish sports watch expert Suunto. The functionality of the sensor can be customized for each use case and the sensor can be custom branded.

Movesense sensor can track motion and physiological parameters in health, wellbeing, sports, research, and more. It can be applied for both recreational and professional use. The programmable sensor is small and lightweight (10g), water and shock resistant, and connects to a mobile phone or another receiver via BLE radio. A version with CE Medical approval will be available.

The platform includes different developer tools such as code samples for the sensor and for mobile, a desktop simulator, and a mobile app for collecting raw data. The mobile app source code is available for use case specific customization. Various attaching accessories such as wrist band, clothing clip, surface mount, and a connector for textile integration are available.

As a Movesense customer, you don't have to invest time and money on developing your own hardware and firmware to launch a sensor product to market. Instead, you can focus on turning your core expertise into customer value by creating only a sensor application and a mobile app, using building blocks of the proven Movesense platform. This gives your project a head start and saves a remarkable amount of time and money compared to developing a similar solution from scratch.

Kaasa’s New Data Collector 2.0 Helps to Record and Manage Large Sets of Movesense Sensor Data

German Kaasa solution GmbH is publishing Data Collector 2.0, a powerful iOS solution for recording Movesense raw data and to manage data sets in projects where sensor data is collected in several locations and by multiple people.

– We developed the Data Collector originally for our own Movesense projects but noticed that many developers need such a tool. Therefore, we are now making the improved 2.0 version available to other companies as well, says Nico Kaartinen, Kaasa CEO who will speak about one of their consumer projects at Medica Medicine + Sports Conference on Nov 21 .

The new Data Collector connects quickly to up to five Movesense sensors and records their data to synchronized files. User can simply select which sensor data to record (acceleration, gyro, magnetometer, heart rate, ECG, temperature) and adjust the sampling rate and other settings. The app makes storing and sharing sensor settings within a project very fast and easy, ensuring that the settings are kept identical across all sensors, locations and users in a project. 

Another big benefits of the app for developrers is its very practical real time data annotation options through video, audio, hot buttons and free text. This meta data is stored and automatically synchronized with the raw data, speeding up algorithm development and utilization of AI based analytics with the collected data.

One of the first users of Data Collector 2.0 is professor Sampsa Vanhatalo, leading researcher at BABA center, Helsinki Children’s Hospital.

– We are developing medical wearables for neurological assessment of spontaneously moving infants. It was necessary to find a tool that allows recording synchronous data from multiple sensor, and Data Collector 2.0 was the only solution that could carry out the task. In addition, the ability to collect synchronized video as well as manual and audio annotations was extremely useful for us. Such tool will be crucial for anyone who wants to collect well characterized datasets for future training of analysis algorithms. Indeed, this was a game changer for our projects. We now feel so confident with the tool and its ease of use that we are planning to give it to external participants in their daily living environments, says professor Vanhatalo.

Evomo releases a software tool for classifying exercises with Movesense

The German startup Evomo developed a unique machine learning system to detect and classify strength training exercises with a single Movesense sensor, worn around the chest, on the wrist, or upper arm. The company provides their solution as an SDK to other companies like software providers and mobile app developers. This enables Evomo’s customers to easily add new innovative movement detection features to their products and to gain market advantage.

Evomo’s vision is to push the digitization of the fitness industry and to set new standards in movement tracking but, thanks to the generic implementation, the Evomo solution can be trained to classify movement patterns in a very large field of use.
