Measuring Respiratory-related Outcomes with Wearable Sensors

Posted by Dudley Tabakin on April 8, 2021

Respiratory abnormalities characterize a variety of disorders. In addition to physical disorders, ventilation is profoundly affected by mental and psychophysiological states, including stress, anxiety, and panic disorder. Let’s take a look at the highlights of respiratory-related health issues and the promising wearable technology available to assess respiratory outcome measures in real-world settings.

An Alternative to the 6MWT in Virtual Clinical Trials

Posted by Patrick Hankey on March 12, 2021

Digital innovation in clinical trial research has been accelerated because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Wherever possible, in-clinical assessments are being replaced with measures taken outside the study site. Decentralized trials present a new challenge to accurately capture data in real-world settings, such as the home or workplace. Here we illustrate how an outcome measure from a wearable sensor can be used as an alternative to the 6-Minute Walk Test (6MWT).
