By January 26, 2018May 1st, 2021No Comments

patientMpower’s first clinical trial in Hemodialysis titled “Study of Self-monitoring of Weight & Blood Pressure (Via patientMpower Platform) in Hemodialysis” has been published on clinicaltrials.gov.

The primary objective will be to determine the frequency of use of the patientMpower app (including the digital weighing scaled and blood pressure monitor).

Secondary outcome measures include measuring the effect of the patientMpower app on:

  • Ultrafiltration rate (UFR)
  • Interdialytic weight gain (IDWG)
  • Blood pressure
  • Medication adherence (particularly on phosphate binders)
  • Additional unscheduled hemodialysis
  • Number of additional unscheduled hemodialysis sessions

Patient and Healthcare professional opinion on utility and acceptability of patientMpower application will be assessed using a structured questionnaire.

The Study has secured funding and IRB approval and is due to commence recruitment in the first half of 2018.

 

Weighing Scales

Get valuable health insights by using our Bluetooth connected weighing scales to monitor body weight. Measured values will be transferred directly to the patientMpower application for healthcare professionals to review in real time.

Blood Pressure Monitor

Our Bluetooth enabled blood pressure monitor accurately measures patients’ blood pressure, measured values will be transferred directly to the patientMpower application for healthcare professionals to review in real time.

Pulse Oximeter

Our Bluetooth connected pulse oximeter measures arterial oxygen saturation and heart rate. Measured values will be transferred directly to the patientMpower application for healthcare professionals to review in real time.

Spirometer

Spirobank SMART spirometer - connects to patientMpower app via Bluetooth for seamless recording of pulmonary function. Measured values will be transferred directly to healthcare professionals to review in real time. Measures:

  • Forced Vital Capacity (FVC)
  • Forced Expiratory Volume in 1st second (FEV1)
  • PEF
  • FEV1/FVC
  • FEV6
  • FEF25/75
