Physician Biometric Data Analysis Helps Improve Patient Outcomes

Posted by Dudley Tabakin on February 27, 2020

The pace, pressures, work-life balance, and emotional aspects of a physician’s job put them at risk for burnout. A study by the American Medical Association and Mayo Clinic found that burnout rates were particularly increased for specialty practitioners. Drs. Nicholas Slamon and Rob Parker, pediatric ICU physicians at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE, used VivoSense® and real-time biometrics of physician stress to study its effects on the care of pediatric patients.

VivoSense® Used to Explore HRV as a Biomarker of Obesity

Posted by Lindsey Ungerman on February 13, 2020

San Diego State University’s Clinical Psychology research group and the Drexel University WELL Center joined forces using VivoSense® to investigate Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and its link to obesity, binge eating, and loss of control while eating. Specifically, the study examined the association between HRV and binge eating and change in HRV from a resting to a stressed task as a potential marker of emotional regulation capacity in obese individuals.

Advanced Analytics for Electromyogram (EMG) Signals using VivoSense® Software: Understanding Muscle Responses to Intensive Resistance Training

Posted by Alexa Williamson on July 10, 2017

Health scientists at Hofstra University, NY, aim to uncover how resistance training with either a focus on intensity or volume increases muscle innervation, adaption and firing rates. These studies provide a greater understanding of how resistance training augments muscle activation and motor unit recruitment in trained individuals. This research has a broad range of applications, as we increasingly see the use of strength training in preventative healthcare and rehabilitation medicine.

Developing Digital Biomarkers in Clinical Trials and Healthcare Delivery

Posted by Patrick Hankey on May 1, 2017

The practice of medicine and medical research is undergoing a rapid digital revolution transforming healthcare into a science of data analytics. The term Digital Health has entered the lexicon as we increasingly understand and describe medicine in terms of data generated by wearable physiological sensors, genetic sequencing and medical imaging. Rock Health, a venture fund dedicated to the founding and growth of Digital Health companies, recently published a report on the data driven transformation of healthcare, in particular highlighting the urgent need to develop digital biomarkers. Digital biomarkers are the medical signal or signatures contained in the vast data sets generated by the ever increasing use of leading edge medical technologies.
