How Labfront can elevate your studies

For Sport Performance

Actively track training output using a connected ECG

In performance research, knowing an athlete’s training load is important. It can be just as important to understand their recovery time. Accurately measure heart rate zones using devices like Movesense’s HR2 (ECG) or a smartband from Garmin.

For Rehabilitation Research

Continuously capture real-world activity data like sleep and stress

Using a non-intrusive wristband like the Garmin vivosmart 5, capture a participant’s lifestyle data to get better context data. Dissect how sleep or sedentary habits can affect an athlete’s performance or the efficacy of a certain intervention.

For Kinesiology/Biomechanics

Combine devices to do everything from gait to stress

Sometimes one device isn’t enough. We have you covered. Combine a Movesense HR2 with a Garmin vivosmart 5 to get a better picture of your participant profile.

Research Highlights

Case Study

Correlations Between Subjective and Objective Wellness Measures in Cross Country Runners

Researchers from Augustana University used Labfront in conjunction with Garmin Forerunner wearables to collect physiological and subjective data from cross-country runners over the course of a month.

The integration of the Labfront survey tool made the data collection process seamless and efficient, while the wearables provided valuable insights into participants' sleep, stress, and body battery metrics.
