    Reduction of duration and cost of clinical trials

Business Challenge

Understanding that Clinical Trials are facing crisis and old objective measures are irrelevant today, our client’s goal was to meet the growing demand for medical-grade wearables. These next-generation devices are a low-cost technology that allows effective processing of real-world data for generating clinical evidence in the healthcare industry. The new solution had to provide access to sponsor and participant data to objectively measure activity and sleep indicators.

Verisense by Shimmer is a wearable sensor platform for clinical trials. It allows for reducing the duration and cost of research and converting data into comprehensive insights about different diseases, possible treatments, and strategies that work best.

Technical Challenges

Our client needed to design an innovative wearable sensing platform from scratch. The platform was supposed to accurately gather complete biometric data with the minimum technical burden on sponsors, patients, and clinical trial sites. It had to reliably capture data from wrist sensors and send it to the cloud providing input data for analysis. Our team had to ensure data integrity and security by embedding the client’s R/Python algorithms that run on the AWS Lambda service.

We developed a cloud-based wearable platform called Verisense and a mobile application that serves as a base station and allows for continuous patient monitoring during clinical trials. To meet complex data flows, we adjusted the client’s SDK logic. Our developers embedded new code logic to meet all needed data transfer requirements as well as developed multiple advanced features to ensure data integrity and security and strategies that work best.

Solution Delivered

The final solution is a combination of a fully-customizable cloud-based platform integrated with customer’s data processing algorithms and connected with sensor devices by Wi-Fi, BLE5, and LTE. The patients’ data is processed and displayed on web-based dashboards. Base stations and sensor devices can be easily configured on dashboards, as well.

Verisense platform is able to cut the cost and duration of clinical trials by providing accurate real-time data for analysis. It allows doctors to seamlessly monitor sponsors’ biometric data and optimize the dosage of medication during clinical trials.

media about the project and trends

"Shimmer's technology was designed specifically for use in clinical trials and differs in several significant aspects from typical off-the-shelf fitness trackers. For example, the Verisense wearable sensor does not require regular charging—its battery lasts for up to six months! Also, Verisense data is automatically uploaded to a remote cloud platform without any patient involvement, making it truly a low-stress, no-hassle device."
