How can you access patients’ data in the app?

Do the Activforce accessories affect the accuracy of the measurements while strength testing?
No, using the accessories does not affect the accuracy when strength testing.
However, if you notice that when you put the Accessory Attachment/Vest on your Activ5 device that it starts to measure force without applying any additional pressure to it, there is a way to reset the device back to 0.
If that is the case, please follow the following steps:
1. click the settings button on the top right corner of your Activforce app
2. click “Tare Activ5” (your Activ5 device must be connected to the app in order for this to work)
Where can I access strength testing guides?
Tap the Settings icon and select Help. Scroll to the bottom of the webpage to view the Activforce Strength Testing Guides.
How do I use the Activforce accessories?
The Accessory Attachment is placed around the Activ5 device. For proper fit, slip it around the device so that the Activ5 logos on both items match positions. Once the Accessory Attachment is on, it can be used to attach the other accessories.
