BioDigit AD Study Update and 2023 CTAD

We are thrilled to announce the completion of BioDigit AD study, a natural history study focused on developing digital and sensor-based biomarkers for early detection and tracking dementia and Alzheimer's disease.  

To conduct the project, BioSensics developed a robust tool for remote monitoring of IADLs using smart tags that get attached to different objects in the home. IADLs are activities that allow an individual to live independently, such as cooking, cleaning, and laundry. The project also involved the use of 1) PAMSysTM sensors for continuous monitoring of physical activity and posture,  and 2) BioDigit HomeTM for remote assessment of dual-task performance and ePRO data collection.

The first results from this study will be presented this week at the 2023 Clinical Trials on Alzheimer's Disease Conference (CTAD) in Boston, MA (Poster 121). 

In addition, we will be giving three other poster presentations at CTAD related to our work in developing digital health technologies for Alzheimer's disease.
