Abbreviated Description: The purpose of this symposium is to 1) present and discuss promising, emerging wearable mobile health technology being used or studied in rehabilitation populations with neurologic injury or neurodegeneration internationally, 2) address the engineering and mechanism underlying sensor function, which wearable technology outcome measures and parameters ought to be prioritized in a rehabilitation clinical and translational research context, 3) report on ongoing observational studies by the presenters, report in-depth on foundational studies that have already used wireless and body-worn technological advances and Ecological Momentary Assessment Methods across the lifespan, 4) understand how such advancements wearable technology can be used to develop clinical interventions and 5) provide a future perspective on use of mobile body-worn technology in translational rehabilitation research and clinical practice settings.
Become familiar with the engineering and mechanism underlying sensor types and its application in populations with neurologic and neurodegenerative diseases.
Describe the use and results of a single chest mounted sensor during performance of an instrumented TUG test in pediatric moderate to severe TBI and healthy controls.
Describe Ecological Momentary Assessment Methods in rehabilitation settings
Describe how wearable sensors are being incorporated into building digital therapeutics, and present the results of a digital therapeutic clinical trial in stroke
