Considering a wearable for your upcoming clinical trial? 

The Apple Watch is an FDA approved Class II device with a slick, beautiful and powerful utility to help conduct a remote virtual clinical trial. 

At Delve Health, we utilize the Apple Watch to collect over 20 digital endpoints across multiple therapeutic areas. Below are a few cases, where an Apple Watch is being used:

  • Enable the early detection of atrial fibrillation and potentially improve outcomes including stroke
  • Identify irregular heart rhythms, including for serious heart conditions such as atrial fibrillation
  • Parkinson’s disease, in which symptoms include tremors, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking
  • Monitor symptom variations as a result of changes in medications or deep brain stimulation treatment
  • Step count as a possible prognostic marker in some lung cancer patients
  • Collect 6MWT for patients with clots
  • Measure of blood oxygen saturation, glucose, stress, and blood pressure

Other uses for the Apple Watch

  • Collect patient reported outcomes questionnaire
  • Collect quality of life questionnaires 
  • Send real-time notifications to study teams for potential adverse events
  • Receive study notifications
