We'll take you through how to choose a device to add to your Labfront project to collect physiological data.
You've started building your app and finished entering the project details. At this point, you're ready to select which type of device you would like to collect physiological data from and add it to your project.
We'll go over:
- Device options in Labfront
- Adding a device to your project
Device Options in Labfront
Labfront is compatible with the Movesense HR2 and Movesense Medical devices. Each device is generally used for two purposes (which also can be combined): ECG heart monitor and/or IMU movement sensor.
Depending on the use case, the device is often used with a chest or wristband accessory, chest patch, or clip.
Labfront is compatible with the Dexcom G6 and G7 devices. Both devices offer continuous glucose monitoring to measure metabolic health.
Add Device to Project
Add a Movesense Device
If adding a Movesense device, you'll also have to create a Movesense Task.
This includes choosing the data you want to collect and the corresponding sampling rate.
Add a Dexcom Device
Dexcom requires approval before it can be used in your project. Thus, after you select Add Device, you will be taken to the form to request a Dexcom integration. After submitting the form, we will connect you with the Dexcom team to complete the process.
