This lecture will provide a critical review of how wearable and mhealth technologies are transforming the field of rehabilitation. We will show how data collected using these technologies in the clinic and in the home and community settings can be utilized to derive estimates of clinical outcomes that would otherwise require the administration of lengthy assessment procedures. Then, we will discuss how these estimates could be utilized to design and implement patient-specific rehabilitation interventions. Finally, we will discuss how we envision that the field of rehabilitation will leverage data collected using wearable and mhealth technologies to deliver better clinical outcomes.
Upon completion, participants will be able to describe how wearable and mhealth technologies can be utilized to derive estimates of clinical outcome measures and design patient-specific interventions.
Demonstrate basic knowledge of available technologies, including how to choose the ones most suitable for the problem at hand.
Upon completion, participants will have a basic understanding of the machine learning algorithms utilized to analyze data collected using wearable and mhealth technologies.
Describe at least 2 ways wearable and mhealth technologies are poised to affect clinical practice in the years to come.
