Researcher Story:

Prof. Will Dixon talks through the results of the Cloudy With a Chance of Pain research study

In this video, Will discusses how, through the use of the uMotif app, his study was able to explore how people’s symptoms change from day to day and how external factors, such as the weather, can influence the severity and nature of their symptoms.

Will describes how the use of smartphone technology can really innovate studies and provide researchers the ability to engage with large volumes of patients, and track symptoms on an ongoing and regular basis.

The volumes of engagement with this particular study are internationally leading, with exceptional recruitment volumes. Patients were really engaged with the use of the app and how easy it was to track their symptoms, as well as actually enabling them to learn more about their condition.
