In an earlier blog, I discussed the value of not limiting data collection sources to the wrist. Though several devices offer wrist-captured physiological signals, this data is limited in scope and not representative of the body’s full spectrum of movement. To highlight this point, we placed BioStampRC Sensors in three locations on a volunteer’s body — the wrist, chest and thigh. Each Sensor captured a distinct accelerometer signal. Once the Sensors were applied, the subject completed a series of activities.
Read on to learn what our experiment demonstrated about the value of multi-location sensing.
