We recommend that before buying a large quantity of devices, you buy one device of the intended type beforehand and test it with movisensXS.

To comply to data privacy requirements or to get an approval from the ethics committee you usually have to prepare an informed consent that the participant has to sign.
The content of such an informed consent is out of the scope of this documentation but you have to include information about the data you aquire and the institutes involved in processing the data. Because movisens is involved in processing the data you have to include information like the following:
movisens GmbH, Karlsruhe, Germany is allowed to process the data collected by the smartphones and store them in the datacenter of the Host Europe GmbH in Köln, Germany until the data is requested for deletion by the researcher. The data is collected and stored anonymously, the identity of the participant is not known to movisens. The study is not allowed to collect data from the participant that allows uncovering the identity of the participant.
We implemented the following security protections
The Lockout-Mode prevents the participant from accessing applications other than movisensXS. To enable the Lockout-Mode, change the configuration parameters of the Sampling running node in the Sampling tab of the web console. Activate Full Screen and Lock other applications. If it is configured and the Study is running the Smartphone will block other applications and will instead launch movisensXS.
The language of the movisensXS app is automatically chosen depending on the configured smartphone language. The study control screens are always in English. Only the screens the participant sees are translated.
The following languages are currently available.
If your language is missing, just register at transifex as a translator and than go to movisensXS app translation, select your language and press Join team (top right). We will approve your account and your translations will be included in our next release.
The results can be downloaded in different formats:
The Form_upload_time and data of the result files is in Central European (Summer) Time which is UTC/GMT +2 hours in winter or UTC/GMT +1 hours in winter. The current time zone can be found here.
All other dates are stored in the local time of the smartphone.
