Mobile Sensors Track Health of Elderly in Pilot Test
Date:7/13/2011

ting data could potentially link to patients' electronic health records, providing medical professionals an objective source of information about the patient, he added.

This objective information would eliminate the bias and recall problems people can display when answering surveys or self-reports about their activities, Berke said.

"The number one thing we heard from participants was not that the device was difficult to use -- what they talked about was how inconvenient and difficult the surveys were to fill out. But we can't draw a lot of conclusions about this. I think it shows promise . . . but to say this is better than surveys at this point is a stretch," he added.

Dr. Gisele Wolf-Klein, director of geriatric education at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, agreed with Berke's assessment and said she was concerned the small study size made it difficult to make recommendations about the use of the sensors.

"I think it's an interesting technology to see what kind of factors might influence overall quality of life," she said. "I would certainly question their attempt . . . I'm not sure you could statistically interpret this extremely small number."
