with iMotions: world’s leading human behavior software
Diagnose and treat better
Solve pressing healthcare questions
Naturalistic data from biosensors create a stronger understanding of how physiological signals and mental states are connected in healthcare and medicine.
Armed with these data, healthcare providers can make better decisions, accelerate research, and improve quality of care.
Optimize patient care
Streamline healthcare research, training, and treatment
Biosensors have a rich history of generating a better understanding of human physiology and behavior within medical contexts. Multimodal research with simultaneous data from several biosensors enables faster, more effective results across the industry, spanning training of medical professionals, to patient interactions and care, to product R&D and marketing, to clinical trials.
Healthcare and pharmaceutical clients are currently integrating different sensor data using iMotions for a vast range of applications.
- Pain detection using facial expression analysis and electrodermal activity
- Optimizing visual aids, apps, websites, and instruction guides with eye tracking
- Research in the treatment of anxiety using VR, eye tracking, electrodermal activity and heart rate variability
- Testing of dispensers & other medical devices
- Autism biomarker exploration with electroencephalography, eye tracking, and electrodermal activity
- Improve communication in healthcare performance
iMotions is used for research at leading hospitals, universities and healthcare companies worldwide
Quantify physiological data in healthcare research
Leverage the power of multiple data streams
With iMotions, you collect and analyze real-time psychophysiological data related to the disease, disorder, or behavior of interest with synchronized biosignals from EEG, eye trackers, facial expression analysis software, EDA, and/or ECG devices.
Combining these data sources provides a more nuanced and detailed understanding of the processes underlying mental and physical states, as well as the efficacy of treatment methods, than a single sensor or modality.
Key features to simplify and amplify your work
Connect. Record. Process.
We use the iMotions platform for self-reporting (surveys), behavioral (eye tracking), emotional (facial expressions), and psychophysiological (skin conductance, heart rate) measures. The biometric data is integrated throughout our work to understand the in vivo psychological responding of our participants in the laboratory.
Psychiatry, Therapy, and Medical Research
An understanding of any disorder or disease is dependent on access to good data. With biosensors, your research can investigate how individuals respond to treatment, or simply the processes underlying day-to-day functioning.
Recording and analyzing multiple biosignals at once with iMotions allows for entirely new data and insights, especially in a behavioral context that is often overlooked: our nonconscious, psychophysiological responses to stimuli.

Diagnostics and mental health research
Finding new ways to study how medical staff interact with patients can vastly improve patient care, from training to clinical practice and protocols. Quantifying these interactions with psychophysiological data can enable better safety and compliance protocols, mitigate mistakes, and ensure high-quality caregiving interactions. Use cases include: How do medical residents’ stress levels increase under emergency drills? Where do surgeons look in virtual surgery rooms?
Whether gathering data in the real world or through simulations in VR, incorporating biosensors into your studies provides healthcare providers with the assessments they need to deliver optimal care.
