Shimmer, a global leader in wearable technology for research applications, today announced the launch of Verisense, its next-generation wearable sensor platform designed from the ground up to meet the needs of clinical trial sponsors, sites and participants.
“There is a growing demand from pharmaceutical companies, regulators and payers to factor real-world data (RWD) into healthcare decision making. They want to ensure that new therapies, especially those for chronic conditions, deliver objective improvements to participants’ health and quality of life. That requires access to real-world participant data and has spurred the rapid growth in wearable technologies to measure objective quality of life indicators, such as activity levels and sleep patterns,” said Geoff Gill, president of Shimmer Americas.
Verisense is a comprehensive and flexible solution for reliably capturing accurate and complete biometric data. Verisense is launching with the Verisense IMU sensor, a general-purpose Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). Worn on the wrist, it can monitor activity and sleep seamlessly. In addition, it can be used for any IMU application with up to seven sensors worn on different parts of a participant’s body, making it invaluable for studying complex musculoskeletal or neurological conditions, such as dystonia or epilepsy. Furthermore, researchers can draw on a wealth of published data and established metrics from more than a decade of research using Shimmer devices.
The Verisense platform provides complete clinical trial sponsor support. Sponsors gain access to all the raw participant data; they are uploaded to a secure site and can be transferred to an electronic data capture system automatically to ensure data integrity. Built-in algorithms provide validated metrics. A monitoring dashboard shows the status of all the sites at a glance, and provides the ability to drill down to every sensor in the study.
From the site perspective, Verisense requires just a five-minute setup to initiate data collection and participant follow up if the system alerts them to a critical issue.
The Verisense platform places the minimum burden on participants. After putting the base station near their bed, or in another location that they visit every day, all they need to do is wear the sensor. It can even be worn in the shower or bath. The Verisense battery lasts for up to six months and the data transfer is completely automatic. The Verisense sensor can be inserted into a wide variety of cradles, ensuring that it meets all style and functional requirements.
