«Given the increased use of wearable devices, such as smart watches, which are able to monitor a broad range of physiological activities, it makes sense that actigraphy is a growing trend in clinical trials. Actigraphy is a non-invasive way to monitor human rest and activity. Some use cases in clinical trials are more obvious, such as in the study of Parkinson’s disease, where a wearable sensor can measure tremors in order to track the ON and OFF activity cycles indicative of levodopa treatment. But the uses of actigraphy are much wider, including everything from behavioral, to CNS, to respiratory, circulatory and oncology-related conditions.»
