GENEActiv: Raw Data Accelerometer

GENEActiv is a comfortable, lightweight and waterproof medical device that delivers continuous recording of high-resolution acceleration, environmental light, and temperature at any body location.
Its robust, neutral design can objectively monitor activity, sleep, and lifestyle, reliably for up to two months without the need for charging.

The GENEActiv system is a low burden for both patients and sites with proven high adherence in many studies. It produces unfiltered tri-axial acceleration data in SI units in an open data format.

Activinsights' GENEActiv device is your key to understanding the intricacies of behaviours, activity, sleep, and lifestyle in real-world settings. Incorporate the GENEActive into your study toolkit and discover a wealth of knowledge waiting to be uncovered. 

Clinical Trials

A gold-standard solution for remotely measuring specific behaviours and activities of daily living. Raw data in open format deliver access to a wide range of validated measures.

Public Health Research

Sensor-level data is an essential resource in longitudinal studies, future-proofing output by allowing re-analysis with new algorithms at any stage.

Health Management and Clinical Care

Data delivered directly to health professionals supports both research and management of chronic conditions (such as obesity and diabetes) and rehabilitation.

Digital Measure Development

Use data from this verified measurement system to develop algorithms for digital measures that can be validated analytically and clinically against appropriate criteria.

Behaviour Detection

Precise body movements, postures and micro-movements are reconstructed from the GENEActiv’s unfiltered raw acceleration data. These measures provide the basic for specific behaviour detection and qualification – such as scratching and tremor.

Evaluating Sleep and Circadian Rhythms

The GENEActiv captures unprocessed movement data, temperature, and light exposure, offering a comprehensive overview of sleep quality and duration. Use to assess disorders that impact rest activity rhythms, movement, and sleep – allowing a deeper understanding of these interactions.


Designed for long term 24-hour wear
Up to 2 months battery life
100% waterproof, lightweight design
Can be worn in multiple body locations
Open-source analytics and open SDKs available
Ambient light and temperature sensor

FDA Compliant

GENEActiv falls under the classification of Class I Non-Sterile Medical Devices, under the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC.

The GENEActiv has received FDA 510(k) exemption status.

In accordance with transitional provisions outlined in Regulation 2023/607, amending Regulations (EU) 2017/745 and (EU) 2017/746, we will be transitioning to compliance with the EU Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR).

Our 150+ digital measures include:

Physical Activity intensity
Sedentary vs movement activity
Posture changes
Sleep / wake time
Sleep event characterisation

Supported by Science

The GENEActiv has been proven in both small-scale studies and large international cohorts of over 10,000 subjects.

What Else Do I Need?

When you buy a GENEActiv device, you will also need to purchase a USB cradle in order to charge, set-up the devices and download data once the collection period has ended.  
Each charging cradle can hold up to 4 devices. Our team will be able to advise on how many cradles would be recommended for your study/number of devices.
Your devices will be supplied with black PU resin wrist straps as standard, however please contact us if you require different straps.

Apps & Software

Our apps and software have been designed to enable healthcare professionals to configure devices and collect data remotely in the most efficient way possible. This gives complete control to the study to share data as required by the study protocol or project needs.
