Benefits of iMotions’ GSR integration

Combine sensors

Combine GSR with Eye Tracking, EEG, EMG, ECG, Facial Expressions, Respiration & Surveys


iMotions GSR software allows researchers to easily combine and synchronize GSR data with other biometric sensors to compliment, enhance and diversify their investigations.

Plug and play solution

Plug & Play GSR Solution


No more complex and time consuming setups, iMotions out-of-the-box integrates wireless GSR devices from Shimmer and Empatica (and Affectiva). iMotions natively integrates with: Shimmer3 GSR, the Empatica E4 GSR and the Affectiva Q-Sensor.

GSR integrations

Integrate your own GSR


What to integrate your own GSR? No problem. iMotions provides an open API to allow you to custom integrate your existing GSR to forward data into the software. This data can be processed by iMotions and then forward it out of the software if needed.

Lab and mobile setups

Lab & Mobile Solution


iMotions wireless GSR integrations allows for any type study design, whether this is a controlled environment setup or a mobile scenario where respondents move freely in a space.
