“Wearipedia - The Stanford Wearables Project”

Wearables, such as the Fitbit or Apple Watch among others, are increasingly popular within the general population as well as the clinical research community for documenting people’s health. However, there is a lack of standardization for data extraction from these wearables, something that is imperative for clinical researchers conducting longitudinal studies using these devices. The Snyder lab is making wearables easy to use for clinical researchers by building a standardized programming library for data extraction. Tristan will be responsible for managing the entire wearable database as well as the website, which he will be focused on improving.
