A LED is blinking on my device. What does it mean?

Blinking or continuously shining LED’s on your device indicate various statuses:

MoveMonitor:
o Green blinking LED: The device is charging when connected via USB. In case of the MoveMonitor(+) the device is blinking for 10 sec directly after disconnecting the device when a measurement is programmed to start in the future. The first 5 minutes of the actual measurement the device will also blink.
o Green LED is shining continuously while connected via USB: The battery of the device is fully loaded.
o Red LED blinking: Battery is low.

MoveTest:
o Blue blinking LED: Bluetooth is active and the device is detectable for the computer.
o Blue LED is shining continuously: There is an active Bluetooth connection between the device and the computer.
o Blue LED is shining continuously and Green LED is blinking: The MT device is measuring.
o Blue and green LED’s are shining continuously: there is an internal error. Please contact the Supportteam. Please mention the device ID.
o Red LED blinking: Battery is low.

Are the MM, MM+ and MT waterproof?

The devices are not waterproof. Please avoid wearing the device during water activities like showering, bathing or swimming. Dampness due to sweating or rain is no problem.

While entering subject date of birth on MyMcRoberts, I am only able to enter year of birth. Is this a problem?

This does not result in problems. Because of privacy-reasons you can only fill in the year of birth. The analysis software only uses the year of birth for calculation of parameters.

MyMcRoberts

While signing-up a ‘study code’ is required. What should I enter?

The study code should be provided by McRoberts. Please contact support@mcroberts to request a study code.

Start and End time of a measurement in MyMcRoberts indicate ‘Invalid Date’.

Please contact the supportteam to check the measurement. Make sure u provide the username and measurement ID.

Why is my measurement in “idle measurement”?

An error occurred during the analysis of the measurement. For most cases an easy fix is applicable. Please contact the supportteam to re-request the analysis.

The DynaPortManager is installed but the pop-up indicating ‘no DynaPortManager installed’ still appears.

The most probable reason is that there is an issue with Windows certificates. You can solve this by running certificate installer files as administrator. In order to do so go to
C:\Program Files(x86)\McRoberts\DynaPortManager\bin\gencert and run the following files as administrator: gencert, importcert, importcert-ff2.

An error occurs while downloading data stored on the device to the PC.

In that case the path to which the measurement is transferred often doesn’t exist. The current path used for transferring data can be seen by going to C:\Program Files (x86)\McRoberts\DynaPortManager. Left klick on the file ‘Run’ and choose edit. The store path is shown and can be altered here. Make a screenshot and send it to the supportteam. You can also try to upload the measurement manually.

How do I upload a measurement that is stored on my pc?

If you want to upload a measurement that is stored on your pc you can click here. Contact McRoberts if it is stated that the measurement has already been uploaded.

How do I change subject characteristics (weight, height, gender, date of birth) of existing subjects?

Once characteristics have been entered they can’t be altered by the user to prevent unwanted changes from occurring. Send an email to McRoberts and McRoberts’ personnel will do it for you. Please include the username, the project, the subject and the values you want to be changed.

Which browser is recommended for the use of MyMcRoberts?

McRoberts recommends to use Chrome or Firefox. Make sure your browser is up-to-date. Regarding the use of the MoveTest we advise against Internet Explorer.

MoveMonitor

What is the maximum measurement duration of the MoveMonitor?

The Maximum measurement duration of the MoveMonitor is 14 days. The maximum measurement duration of the MoveMonitor+ is 7 days.

What is the difference between the MoveMonitor and the MoveMonitor+

The MoveMonitor+ hardware includes an additional tri-axial gyroscope whereas the MoveMonitor hardware does not. The gyroscope’s sampling frequency is 100 Hz.
The MoveMonitor has a maximum measurement time of 14 consecutive days. The maximum measurement time of the MoveMonitor+ is 7 consecutive days due to extra data storage and energy expenditure resulting from the addition of the gyroscope sensor.

Is it possible to program a measurement to start in the future?

A MoveMonitor measurement can be programmed to either start direct or to start in the future. In the measurement tab in MyMcRoberts you can select the day and time at which the measurement should start.

The serial/ID number in MyMcroberts doesn’t correspond with the serial number on the the back of the device. What can I do?

Contact mcroberts including the serial number as shown in MyMcRoberts and the serial number on the back of the device.

MoveTest

The PC is unable to detect the MoveTest device for establishing a Bluetooth connection.

Flip the device in order to activate the Bluetooth module. Bluetooth consumes relatively large amounts of energy and is therefore switched off when the MoveTest is not being used. The blue LED should blink when it is detectable for the PC. If the blue LED is not blinking after flipping the device, most probably the battery should be charged.

The MoveTest is successfully coupled to the PC via Bluetooth but MyMcRoberts indicates that Bluetooth connection failed.

Make sure that the device is within range for connection with the PC and that the Bluetooth of the MoveTest is turned on (flip the device).

What steps do I have to take to couple the MoveTest device to the PC via Bluetooth?

Please follow the steps in the MoveTest Manual.

Some markers that have been entered during the measurement are missing in the data.

The markers are transferred to the PC via Bluetooth after the protocol has been completed. Do not connect the MoveTest via USB connection until notified like in the picture below. Premature establishment of USB connection might lead to failure in tranferring the markers.

Send an email to McRoberts if this does not solve the problem.

The serial/ID number in MyMcroberts doesn’t correspond with the serial number on the the back of the device. What can I do?

Contact mcroberts including the serial number as shown in MyMcRoberts and the serial number on the back of the device.

How is the short physical performance battery performed?
