First Ambulatory Assessment Study

We have started our first ambulatory assessment study, this study consists of 10 subjects, five with burnout and five without burnout, data will be collected for a 14-day time period. This first ambulatory assessment was made possible through our partner the psy-bern AG. Subjects are given multiple questionnaires, which are used in todays clinical and ambulatory settings, we also developed our own questionnaires in app together with the psy-bern AG. Subjects also receive hardware such as a Smartphone (with our App installed), a Polar H10 chest belt (sponsored by Polar Switzerland), multiple accelerometer sensors and a bed sensor. In the end we will use this first trial dataset to model and predict stress.
