Mobility is freedom to a patient; freedom to go to the store, cross the street in time, visit family members. Mobility is also much more than how often they move, it’s how well they move. Dr. Fay Horak will detail the last decade of scientific research and development of digital endpoints and supporting wearable technology. Findings suggest that actigraphy is useful for measuring intervention response in a select few populations, while precise movement endpoints such as turning speed, stride length, dorsiflexion, and trunk range of motion are useful in many others. When it comes to effective trial design, you need to understand the disease and endpoints before you choose a digital technology.

Featured topics to include:

  • Analytical and Clinical Validity – What’s the difference?
  • Activity vs precision movement analytics
  • In-clinic vs At-home Monitoring
  • Parkinson’s Disease Endpoints
  • Multiple Sclerosis Endpoints
  • Ataxia Endpoints


BONUS: A $10 Amazon eGift card will be given to those that attend (must be a registered attendee for DIA’s Digital Technology in Clinical Trials Conference to qualify).
