Sensors & Wearables
Measure Patient Health
Wearable and sensor technologies empower researchers to capture the full spectrum of patient health. Track patient health remotely, objectively, and with higher frequency than traditional methods while still aligning to traditional in-clinic assessments.
Engineered by clinical, software, and user experience experts at Clinical ink, essential data and context are captured through active and passive mobile activities, measuring patient health and generating precision insights to support the development of digital biomarkers.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are sensors and wearables?
Sensors are electronic components that detect physical or environmental changes, such as temperature or heart rate. Wearables are devices worn on the body, like smartwatches or fitness trackers, equipped with sensors to monitor health-related metrics. Together, they provide real-time insights into various physiological or behavioral aspects for medical research.
Why are sensors & wearables important in clinical trials?
Sensors and wearables play a crucial role in clinical trials by:
- Enabling Continuous Monitoring: They provide real-time, continuous insights into vital signs and other health metrics without requiring constant clinical supervision.
- Enhancing Data Accuracy: By tracking information directly, these devices minimize human error and capture a more comprehensive view of a patient's health.
- Improving Patient Engagement: Wearables offer a non-intrusive way for participants to engage in trials, increasing comfort and compliance.
- Facilitating Decentralized Trials: Sensors and wearables allow for remote monitoring, making trials more accessible and reducing the need for frequent site visits.
- Providing Rich Data Insights: They offer objective, high-resolution data that can lead to a deeper understanding of treatment effects and patient responses.
Does the Clinical ink platform integrate with wearables and sensors?
Yes, the Clinical ink platform is designed to integrate seamlessly with connected wearables and sensors.
