Mobile health (mHealth) applications provide support to patients outside of clinic. They are commonly paired with wearable devices which enable continuous health monitoring and facilitate timely intervention. Nevertheless patients frequently perceive medical wearables as difficult to use and abandon their adoption . Consumer-grade wearables are more widely available and are focused more on the user-friendly design, nevertheless, their physiological signal tracking quality might be varying. Apple watch is a consumer-grade watch that has been also medically approved.
In this project, the student will develop mhealth application for iOS and Apple watch and conduct comparative assessment of usability and signal quality extracted from multiple medical and consumer-grade devices.
Project in collaboration with dr Tomasz Trzcinski, Warsaw University of Technology.
