Adjust the Vital Parameters in the Study Portal

Once your Study is created, the next logical action is to adjust its parameters.
Here is how to proceed.

Edit your Study settings

On the Study Portal, go to your Studies page, and click the cog icon of the Study that you want to edit.

This will open the Study settings page, which is composed of 5 sections:

  1. Product
  2. Vital Parameters
  3. Raw Data
  4. App Dashboard
  5. App Tabs

Let’s go through each one of them.

1. Select your product

First, select the CardioMood model that applies to your Study.

2. Adjust your Vital Parameters

Then, you can disable or enable the parameters that you want to monitor on your subjects with the CardioMood.

When enabling a Vital Parameter, you may have the choice between different monitoring rates and time periods.

1/30 minutes




every 30 minutes

once per minute

every 10 seconds

once per second

Please note that the selected rate has a direct impact on the CardioMood battery autonomy. A higher monitoring rate will result in a shorter battery cycle. Therefore, the subjects of the Study will need to recharge their CardioMood more often.


the Vital Parameter is monitored all day long, regardless of the user’s activity


the Vital Parameter is monitored only during Sleep time, based on the bed time and rise time configured by the user in the CardioMood app

Refer to our Metrics support section if you need more information regarding which Vital Parameters are relevant to your Study.

3. Enable Raw Data

If the output metrics provided by the CardioMood are not enough for you, or you want to use some algorithms of your own, you can enable the Raw Data to have access to the data coming directly from the CardioMood’s sensors.

ACCaccelerometer sensor
PPGGPPG Green sensor
PPG G/R/IrPPG Green, Red and Infra red sensor
BioZskin conductance sensor

Please note that enabling Raw Data has a direct impact on the CardioMood battery autonomy. The more data you enable, the more power is necessary for both the CardioMood and the CardioMood app device, due to higher data transfer rate.

Be also aware that in case of large amount of data monitoring (such as PPG G/R/Ir at 128Hz), the memory autonomy of the bracelet will be reduced, in the sense that the memory buffer of the CardioMood will get full much faster.
This is why it is strongly recommended for all subjects to keep their phone close to them with the app running as much as possible (including at night if relevant).

4. Choose your app dashboard

Then, you can select one of the predefined CardioMood app Dashboards.

The default one is called RPM which stands for Remote Patient Monitoring and provides continuous monitoring.

The Start/Stop dashboard is ideal for one-shot measurements.

5. Choose your app tabs

Finally, you can customize the number and type of tabs than you want to see in the CardioMood app, in addition to the main dashboard.

Please note that depending on your Vital Parameters and Dashboard selections, some tabs might show empty content. For instance, there is no point enabling the Sleep tab in the app, if your Study does not enable Sleep monitoring.
