One of the devices, MotionWatch 8, can monitor patient activity by using a digital tri-axial accelerometer, used in many consumer fitness trackers.

The data collected by the device can be transferred to a computer with the help of USB connection while accompanying software converts the data collected by a light sensor and activity marker into activity plots to quantify the intensity and duration of daily physical activity.

The second device, PRO-Diary, comes with the same activity monitor as the MotionWatch. Featuring an OLED screen, a touch sensitive slider and two buttons, the device can be used by patients to answer questions at any moment of the day and has a battery life of two weeks.
