Our ambulatory monitoring solutions were perfected based on over two decades of in-house experience with measuring ambulatory physiology. A lot of this work has been done by PhD students. Their efforts have aided the development of the VU-AMS device and VU-DAMS program, whole adding cutting edge research to the field ambulatory stress monitoring. The VU-AMS device has played a prominent role in the research of 15 theses under the supervision of prof. dr. Eco de Geus during the past 22 years, with four projects currently running.
