This document will help you determine which positions you sleep in. It is important to always insert the Hexoskin Device the same way into the side pocket. This will allow you to compare different sets of data over time.
Place the device in the pocket with the LED lights facing outward. This leaves 4 possible device orientations that are shown in the table below.
The most ergonomic and often used orientations are 1 and 2.
The different positions recorded by Hexoskin are called P1, P2, P3, P4, and P5 in your Hexoskin Dashboard (my.hexoskin.com). They each represent one of the following: standing or sitting (always P5), lying on your back, on your belly, on your left side, and on your right side. Your Hexoskin Dashboard displays the time spent in each position and the number of times you changed positions.
For example, if the device is in orientation 2 in your pocket (see the example image above), the 1st position (P1) is associated with lying on the belly, P2 on the back, P3 on the right side, P4 on the left side and P5 for standing or sitting. If the device or the garment moves during the night, this could affect the position detections (refer to attached document Sleep Positions Guide).
