What Are You Wearing?
There is increasing interest in incorporating data from wearable devices (activity and sleep trackers, heart rate monitors, smartwatches) into clinical trials. This is mainly due to the advantages sponsors, sites, and patients can recognize from their use. Sponsors can gain additional data to better understand a treatment’s effect on the participant. Investigative sites can use the data to monitor the patients’ health and to gain insight into the patients’ engagement. And, patients can potentially see metrics about their life and health they wouldn’t otherwise have access to.
