These hardware configurations are designed to tackle commonly faced challenges in clinical research and lower the burden of the patient experience, to improve compliance and participation while generating meaningful data over extended time periods.

Empatica Actigraphy was specifically developed to suit the needs of sleep and activity-related studies and provide digital biomarkers across various core areas including:

  • Sleep analysis
  • Sleep detection
  • Gait/step count
  • Wearing detection
  • Body position
  • Activity intensity
  • Energy expenditure
  • Activity counts
  • Activity classification

Empatica’s Platform adds key sleep and activity measures to an already rich offering of digital biomarkers including pulse rate, SpO2 and respiratory rate, making it a highly scalable solution beyond the capabilities of other actigraphy options currently available in the market.
