Updates on the Wearables Study for Patients

The ongoing wearables study is enrolling transplant patients and their household members to wear smart watches that measure biometrics, such as heart rate, heart rate variability, blood pressure, sleep and respiratory patterns, activity, and saturating oxygen levels. Algorithms are being applied to the data streams from these devices. These algorithms…
