What is it about?
We developed an open source python software for the analysis of actigraphy recordings made with various devices. The functionalities range from data cleaning, calculations of rest-activity rhythm variables up to more advanced data processing techniques such as functional linear modelling, detrended fluctuation analysis or singular spectrum analysis.

Why is it important?
We argue that there is a lack of open source software for the analysis of actigraphy recordings in the python ecosystem. The use of closed source commercial softwares not only limits the list of variables accessible by the researchers, it also hampers the current community efforts to make our research results more reliable and reproducible.
