Scientific journals on MOX accelerometry

The MOX is a validated and medically certified wearable accelerometer that delivers one of the most precise and consistent measurements for physical activity monitoring. It is the most advanced accelerometer development from Maastricht Instruments BV based on the earlier product versions, the CIRO Activity Monitor (CAM) and DAAFb which have been used for more than a decade to accurately measure physical activity in research and healthcare applications.

E-health Applications

Physical activity is important for a person’s quality of life, especially for people suffering from chronic conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or diabetes. The MOX accelerometer can be integrated with innovative patient monitoring and feedback tools for eHealth applications, for instance the It’s Life care service. Find out more
