Physical Activity and Performance Monitoring

We facilitate the use of our monitors in three distinct markets: in clinical care, clinical trials and research. Our web-based platform for communication with the DynaPort systems and data storage is flexible and allows to smoothly collect and manage data for all type of users.


Our new DynaPort systems offer a wide variety of sensors which allows for detailed analysis of daily activity and physical performance. We offer both analysis modules for automatic processing of data and a solution to analyse data with self-developed algorithms.

Clinical Trials

The DynaPort systems are registered as a Class I Medical Device with the American Food and Drug Authority and the European Medicines Agency and are validated in various field by renowned scientist. Our dedicated platform is built to support multi-center, multi-country studies in accordance with the highest safety regulatory demands.

Clinical Care

Evidence grows that physical activity is one of the best predictors of morbidity and mortality in chronic and geriatric patients. Reliably measuring physical activity is the first step to effective interventions that help those people improve their physical activity levels and hence increase their quality of life and extend life expectancy.

The MoveMonitor will enable you to easily assess the physical activity status of your subjects. With one small device, worn in an elastic strap on the lower back, you will be able to measure your subjects’ physical activity for up to 14 days. The MoveMonitor consists of a hardware unit, managing software, and one or more chosen analysis modules, accessible through our web service.

With the MoveTest you will be able to do short physical performance tests using one single device to be attached around the waist of the subject. Dedicated software will assist you in efficiently performing a pre-defined test protocol. The MoveTest consists of a hardware unit, managing software, and one or more chosen modules, accessible through our web service.

McRoberts updates

Here's what we're working on and thinking about at McRoberts.

  • My McRoberts: Study overview improved
  • My McRoberts now also provides project progress in an instant: when you select a project, a matrix with subjects and visits will be displayed.
  • Gait stability in Parkinson’s disease
  • Gait and cognitive dysfunction in Parkinson's disease are partly related to an underlying cholinergic deficit. A randomized controlled trial that was recently published in Lancet Neurology investigated the effect of Rivastigmine, to ameliorate the cholinergic deficit, on gait variability in PD patients. The DynaPort Hybrid was used in this study to assess gait variability by means of the standard deviation of step times.
  • What you can do and what you actually do
  • A paper by McRoberts’ founder and CEO Rob van Lummel on physical function in old age appeared in PLoS ONE this month. This paper demonstrates that, although physical performance (what you can do) and physical activity (what you actually do) are associated domains of physical function, older adults who do very well on physical performance tests are not per se more active.
