Using Mobiles and Wearables for Public Health

Enabling the collaborative research in Precision Health that is instrumental in the transition to preventative medicine

The symposium brings together researchers from across disciplines at the University of Cambridge to showcase the potential, and challenges, of mobile and wearables in public health.

Mobile and wearable devices, such as smartwatches and fitness trackers, have exploded in popularity in recent years. With ever improving advancements in technology, networks and data analytics, the potential of wearables has skyrocketed – especially in health.

Through the widespread adoption of wearable devices, their benefits can extend beyond individual users to the realm of public health. When combining individual users of wearables, it is possible to analyse health at a population level, and to screen for and monitor diseases at low cost.
