Advancing movement & sleep research

By Dr. Vincent van Hees

As creator and developer of R package GGIR, Open Source software for analysing accelerometer data, I am committed to improving the quality of research into human movement and sleep. In collaboration with fellow researchers and developers across the world I aim for solutions that are efficient and reusable.

GGIR Software

I created GGIR in 2013 as a generic solution to handle and analyse the data collected with modern accelerometers. GGIR facilitates: data reading, data quality assessment, generation of basic descriptive reports about a person’s movement, sleep detection and the detection bouts of time spent in acceleration ranges while allowing for short gaps in behaviour.
