Accute Care Mobility Dataset

Demographics: 22 participants, recovering after acute event (e.g. heart attack, severe pneumonia)


Duration: between 1-2 days for each participant

Purpose: Understand the utility of smartphones for measuring patient mobility in hospital after recovering from an acute event.

Data Collected 

Accelerometer, gyroscope, Bluetooth and WiFi collected continuously for patients while in recovery. Phones replaced every 6 hours by staff to prevent battery failure. Observational study where patient was observed by an intern for 15 minutes every hour for correlating measurements with observation of mobility patterns.


Analysis ongoing.
