Leveraging Smartphone Sensors to Measure Novel Health Outcomes, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 21, 2016) - During an informative session, Dr. Bill Byrom, PhD, Senior Director of Product Innovation at ICON, Christian Gossens, PhD, MBA, Global Head of Early Development Workflows at F. Hoffman-La Roche Ltd and Professor Guillermo Sapiro, PhD, Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University will provide insight on three broad areas:

  1. The sensors contained in modern smartphones and review validation studies leveraging these sensors to measure health outcomes.
  2. The development of performance tests and passive monitoring for Parkinson's Disease within a smartphone application. Christian Gossens will present data and experience in using this approach within clinical research conducted by Roche.
  3. The use of artificial intelligence algorithms to assist in mobile face analysis for mental and developmental health screening, with specific application to autism spectrum disorders.

This live event takes place on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at 9am EDT (1pm GMT/UK).

The proliferation of sensors and components contained in modern smartphones, and the ability to develop apps that can access smartphone sensor readings by leveraging the open development capabilities of the main platforms, we have arrived at an exciting inflection point. It is now possible to use the increasingly ubiquitous smartphone as a platform to measure a variety of novel health-related endpoints that may have value in clinical trials. We see this already in some of the published developments using Apple Research Kit and other Android platforms.

This webinar explores this innovative area and the associated benefits by illustrating key work in the field. It will provide an overview of novel uses of smartphone sensor measurement in the areas of health, wellness and clinical research and appraises the promise of these approaches in clinical trials.
