We have great news! Devon and Exter NHS started the recruitment of participants in the clinical observational study of the IDEA-FAST project, joining the other clinical sites that are now on a roll. We congratulate the team for this great accomplishment!
The IDEA-FAST Clinical Observational Study is on a roll! We are proud to announce that Stavanger University recruited last week their first patient and they are ready to start. We are looking forward to one intense year with 2000 participants and 15 clinical sites across Europe.
We are delighted to announce that Newcastle University has recruited two patients for the start of the IDEA-FAST Clinical Observation Study. The goal of the study and indeed the IDEA-FAST project is to identify, profile and validate digital solutions based on mobile or residential technology for remote assessment of fatigue and sleep disturbances that could […]
On May 30 and 31, members of IDEA-FAST met in Kiel, Germany, to prepare for the start of the Clinical Observational Study (COS). The University Medical Centre Schleswig-Holstein as sponsor of the COS with their Neurogeriatrics Lab prepared the meeting for representatives from almost all clinical sites participating in the project. Important aspects of recruitment […]
IDEA-FAST will be represented at the annual IBD-DACH congress (inflammatory bowel disease, Germany, Austria, Switzerland). Professor Fai Ng is going to give a presentation on IDEA-FAST as an overview on eHealth in general and the use of digital endpoints in IBD research.
Dear all, With the end of 2021 and the Christmas season approaching, I am writing to express my gratitude and to congratulate you on your contributions and achievements over the past 12 months. It has been a real pleasure and privilege to work with this amazing consortium. Despite the intensely challenging circumstances, you have once […]
On 1st December 2021, IDEA-FAST invited its consortium members to join an internal Science Showcase. The aim of the Science Showcase was to review the Feasibility Study (FS) data and brainstorm the next analysis steps in a clinical context and in the light of the feedback we have received from European Medicines Agency (EMA) on […]
Wild by Design: Workshop on Designing Ubiquitous Health Monitoring Technologies for Challenging Environments
There is a growing focus on monitoring health in uncontrolled (aka in-the-wild) settings. This is partially due to the limitations of occasional formal assessments, and to the increasing availability of off-the-shelf sensing devices and applications. This change of paradigm promises fine-grained monitoring of chronic and neurodegenerative diseases, early prediction of health conditions, accessible self-management, and […]
Touch data, and in particular text-entry data, has been predominantly collected in laboratory settings, under controlled conditions. While touch and text-entry data has consistently shown its potential for monitoring and detecting a variety of conditions and impairments, its deployment in-the-wild remains a challenge. In the paper, WildKey, an Android keyboard toolkit is presented that allows […]
New publication – Data Contribution Summaries for Patient Engagement in Multi-Device Health Monitoring Research
Fatigue and sleep disturbances are symptoms of several chronic diseases associated with poor quality of life and increased healthcare costs. A large part of measuring patient’s health is using self-reported methods that can be prone to recall bias or require extensive effort to complete, e.g., sleep diaries. Building on these challenges, IDEA-FAST aims to determine […]
