configure the ilumivu System to capture physiological data from wearable sensors
Do you want to understand what's happening physiologically for your participants as they move through their daily lives? What events trigger elevated arousal levels? When are they most calm? How much do they move and in what ways? You can now capture these type of data with light-weight wearable sensors that send information directly to either a mobile phone or a computer. This technology releases research designs from the constrains of laboratory based situations, enabling the capture of real-time physiological data in real-life situations.
Your ilumivu System captures biometric data relevant to behavior such as heart rate, heart rate variability, autonomic arousal (via electrodermal activity) and motion and integrates with with other data steams, such as self-report from mobile EMA (Ecological Momentary Assessment) data and those from the phone's internal sensors (e.g. ambient light, noise levels, or GPS location).
The biosensors integrated into the ilumivu System are designed by engineers from MIT and represent the latest in wearable biosensor technology.
The biosensors currently transmit data to a mobile phone in real time (via Bluethooth or ANT) or store 12 hours of data that are later pushed to a computer or centralized web server.. The sensors provide up to 12 hours of continuous monitoring before requiring re-charge and are easily re-charged at home with a USB connection.
The ilumivu System extension allows biometric data from the wearable sensors to be integrated with both observational data entered from the mobile phone or website alongside environmental data such as video or audio monitoring.
