Wearable Health Lab
“Using data from commonly available wearable devices we combine population science with personalized medicine to develop new tools for precision health.”
Matthew Smuck, MD
With a particular interest in musculoskeletal and mobility-limiting diseases, we analyze longitudinal and cross-sectional wearable biosensor data to uncover disease specific patterns. Using insights from population science we apply this to gain new insights into disease mechanisms, and to develop tools for precision health. We are particularly interested in. Here are some examples of this work.
We are a team of researchers with expertise in clinical medicine, exercise physiology, computer science, and biostatistics.
