AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How can single accelerometers or smartphone based measures of gross activity characterize voluntary and involuntary movements?

Using either body-worn sensors, mobile devices, or other novel applications, the science of this small cohort study will focus on which data parameters are critical, which instruments are most appropriate, how much data are needed, from where on the body, and for how long in the measurement of movement. Ensuring that data are standard, sensors are reliable in measuring the outcome of interest, and approaches to data analysis are rigorous and reproducible are primary needs in the field.
