Statistical techniques will be applied to see if data collected from patients using wearables can be used to a) predict changes in symptoms and b) produce tailored care plans for individual patients. We will trial methods that collect and use data in ways that take into account individual risk factors (e.g. age, ethnicity) and conserve the battery life of wearable devices.
We will trial the technical aspects of the Wearable Clinic with a small number of healthy volunteers, people with schizophrenia, and people with chronic kidney disease.
We will also investigate costs, benefits, and potential risks of the Wearable Clinic in its earliest stages of development and, where necessary and feasible, integrate solutions during the lifetime of the project.
A series of workshops, open to the public, will be held to explore cross-cutting issues such as trustworthy data use and privacy.
