This biomarker measurement system simplifies remote monitoring, boosts participant adherence and improves results for clinical trials and health research.
The solution collects raw data or augmented data from sensors in the wrist-worn devices. The measured sensor data is transferred to the cloud in real time through a reliable and efficient data transfer process using LTE Cat-M1 technology.
The solution is optimised to operate without the need for frequent user interaction which enables uninterrupted data collection. The collected data is available for processing, analytics or other applications through our cloud service.
Researchers can view the collected data through the web console. The dashboards in the web console offer a user-friendly and intuitive way of accessing, visualising and interacting with the data, making it an ideal choice for clinicians or study nurses who require regular data access.
The solution can be used for large-scale data exports. By integrating with external systems through a REST API, you can enable programmatic access to the data and allow researchers to control the data export process. This provides a high level of customisation and flexibility for advanced data processing, or for integration with in-house repositories or external analytic systems. Simple and quick downloads of data samples are also possible.
The mSafety Digital Biomarker Solution separates itself from consumer devices by giving you complete transparency of the collected data. The unfiltered, raw data is entirely yours. Rest assured, Sony does not utilize your data, nor claim any rights to it, making data ownership straightforward.
Researchers can set up data collection projects for clinical trials in the solution's user-friendly web console. They can configure the devices and ensure optimal sensor range and frequency for each specific trial. For large-scale trials that involve multiple clinics, researchers can use the data separation feature to manage and monitor data collection across clinics and ensure that the data is collected accurately and securely at every site.
Researchers can measure the adherence of the trial participant. Sensor data and data about the state of the device (charging, not worn, etc.) are continuously uploaded via the Sony cloud service. This makes it possible to detect when trial participants fail to adhere to trial protocols and lets researchers know when to send reminders or take action. In addition, the device application only displays limited information to the trial participant (time, battery and network status) to remove biases in their adherence.
The solution supports Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) updates, enabling effortless application updates and adjustment of settings with minimal or no intervention. Remotely assign and configure applications, sensors, frequency and range for maximum flexibility.
Diagnostic information from the device – related to network connectivity and battery life – lets researchers identify potential issues and proactively address them. This feature ensures that the devices and data collection remain operational, even in demanding environments.
