Raw Accelerometer Data Analysis
A tool to process and analyse data collected with wearable raw acceleration sensors as described in van Hees and colleagues (2014) and (2015) . The package has been developed and tested for binary data from 'GENEActiv' < https://www.activinsights.com/> and GENEA devices (not for sale), .csv-export data from 'Actigraph' < http://actigraphcorp.com> devices, and .cwa and .wav-format data from 'Axivity' < https://axivity.com/product/ax3>. These devices are currently widely used in research on human daily physical activity.
The code in this repository is the development version for the code in R-package GGIR on CRAN
The package vignette and this short tutorial video provide an introduction to GGIR, including: How it can be installed, Key software features, and where to get help.
We always welcome contributions to the package.
