Mobile Accelerometry in Clinical Trials: Potential Applications and Meaningful Outcomes
Martin Daumer, DrSc
Sylvia Lawry Centre For Multiple Sclerosis Research - The Human Motion Institute, Germany
This workshop will focus on the usage of mobile sensors in clinical trials. We will demonstrate methods, tools, and devices (e.g. actibelt) to assess physical activity, and discuss the acceptance of sensor-derived outcomes as pivotal endpoints.
Learning Objective : Identify opportunities and challenges of mobile sensor-technology as a method to assess physical activity in clinical trials; Discuss the clinical relevance of candidate endpoints derived from accelerometer data and discuss the usage of sensor-derived outcomes as pivotal endpoints; Facilitate decisions on the use of mobility sensors in their specific field of application.
