Science news | Wearable biosensors can help patients with complex health problems

Waterloo [Canada]December 20 (ANI): A new study from the University of Waterloo found wearable sensor technology is useful for remote monitoring of health-related behavior in people with heart disease.

The research was published in the Journal of Neurology.

“Information from wearables can provide insights into health-related behavior patterns and disease symptoms that occur over days and weeks. This can be important for monitoring the progression of the disease and the effects of therapeutics in addition to the assessments conducted in the clinic, ”said Karen Van Ooteghem, researcher in kinesiology and health sciences at Waterloo.

“As part of our research program, we are working to validate novel results from wearables for these purposes and to develop ways to convey this information to patients and clinicians,” added Ooteghem.

Understanding the feasibility in the participants’ natural environment was important for the researchers, as behavior in the laboratory or clinic may not reflect what was happening in daily life, Van Ooteghem said.

The researchers recruited 39 participants with cerebrovascular or neurodegenerative diseases to wear up to five devices on their ankles, wrists and chest continuously for seven days after visiting the clinic. For people with complex health problems, there were benefits in using multiple sensors to record specific behaviors and symptoms, such as upper and lower limb impairment. The participants wore at least three devices on a median of 98 percent of the duration of the study. They also enrolled with a study partner who was able to help them with any problems that arose during the study.

Beth Godkin, a PhD student in Waterloo Kinesiology and Health Sciences and first author of the article, said willingness to wear the technology may have been influenced by the support given to participants during the study. Through interviews with participants and study partners, the researchers also learned that there is still room for improvement when it comes to the technology itself that could improve the user experience.

“Participants felt it was important to optimize comfort, ease of use and appearance when wearing sensors for long periods of time and felt that continuous efforts should be made to ensure that the technology was not interfering with everyday activities affected, ”said Godkin.

“The generally positive response from the participants and the willingness to deal with the wearing of multi-sensors over a longer period of time is the first necessary step to meaningfully integrate our approach into larger research studies and finally to include it in clinical care,” added Godkin added.

The study was funded by the Ontario Brain Institute. (ANI)
