Biostatistical methods for wearable devices with applications to NHANES and UK Biobank
Biostatistical methods for wearable devices with applications to NHANES and UK Biobank
Abstract

Wearable devices, such as accelerometers and heart monitors, are used in health research because they provide objective, continuous, unbiased, and detailed information about human activity either in the laboratory or the free-living environment. In this talk I will explore the different resolutions of the data, ways to summarize it, and inferential methods for exploring the associations with health outcomes. We will illustrate these methods using large, publicly available datasets, including the NHANES and UK Biobank.
