Transitioning from Actiwatch Spectrums to Fitbits – One Lab’s Approach

In this session, Helen Burgess, Ph.D., will present her lab's approach to transitioning from Actiwatch Spectrums to Fitbits and discuss lessons learned. Philips/Respironics recently announced the discontinuation of their sale and service of the Actiwatch Spectrum, a research grade actiwatch widely used in sleep research. This change has forced many sleep researchers to choose a new device for data collection and analysis, and many sleep labs chose the Fitbit device as a replacement. In this presentation, Dr. Burgess and her team will demo the use of fitabase in the collection and analysis of wrist actigraphy using the Fitbit Charge 5 device.


DIGIT-MI is where faculty and staff across the University of Michigan meet to connect, learn, and share resources that encourage the increased use of digital and mobile technologies and mental wellness measurements in research across multiple disciplines. Each meeting features a speaker(s) who shares how-to’s on aspects of research using mobile and digital technologies.
