Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.
