Excel-Addin for GeneActive Accelerometers

Offial homepage of manufacturer:

This is a project to develop software that processes data that is collected by Geneactiv devices. It is the missing link between data, downloaded from the devices and human readable numbers in diverse forms.

To get started, you need to have the raw accelerometry data saved as .bin via the official Geneactic PC Software. You also need the Excel addin (sytem requirements and download below). The Addin is able to summarize the data in epochs from 1 second to 60 seconds and displays data in form of SVMGS (sum vector magnitude, gravity substracted) or MAD (mean amplitude deviation). The epochs are also classified with thresholds defined in a config file.

System requirements:

  • Excel 2010 or later. Currently only tested on Excel 2010
  • Operating System Windows 7/8/8.1
  • The DotNet 4.0 Framework and the Office Toolkit from Microsoft gets installed if not already there
