Understanding Wearable Sensor Types and Wear Location

When deploying wearable sensors in clinical trials, it is essential to understand how they should be positioned on the body. The objective is to maximize the quality of the signal while minimizing the burden on patients and maintaining their comfort. Sensor wear position also impacts the accuracy and precision of digital clinical outcome measures. Here's an overview of some common wearable sensors types and wear locations.
