2 DAILY ROUTINE

 

CONNECT SMART CUSHION

Connect the Smart Cushion at the start of every working day.

Put the USB cable of the Smart Cushion into your Windows laptop.

Select the COM port which appears on the left. Press the 'Select' button.

When you sit on the sensor, your activity (sitting or standing) should appear in the top center of the program.

When you haven't connected to the sensor the software will show the message "Awaiting Connection..."  If you have multiple USB devices connected, you might want to disconnect, refresh and try another port.  When you have successfully connected to the sensor the software will show the message "Recording..."

WEAR THE CHEST BAND

Every morning at the start of the working day, you will need to place the chest band around your chest. You turn the chest sensor on and off by connecting/disconnecting it from the strap. 

To start a recording from the home/time screen, press the middle button on the Polar Smart Watch once to select the program 'Running' and then another time to start the recording. 


At the end of the working day you stop the recording by pressing and holding the lower left button for at least 3 seconds. 

In case the watch runs out of energy (might be after 1 or 2 days), you can charge it with the added micro USB cable.

 

ANSWERING QUESTIONS

On the right of the software program are 5 types of inquires. You can open

them by clicking the buttons on the right. Start with 'Start of Research'.

The three below are to be filled in on a daily basis.


The software program automatically stores the results of the inquires in

excel files at the end of the day in the file you installed to your desktop.

Conclude the research on the end of day 5 with the End of Questionnaire
