Associations between Physiological Signals Captured using Wearable Sensors and Self-Reported Outcomes among Patients in AUD Recovery: Development and Usability Study

Abstract

The current research is designed as a proof-of-concept study to establish the feasibility of using a wearable sensor device to provide continuous monitoring of stress in an ambulatory setting. Toward that end, we first established the validity of two continuously-monitored physiological signals, electrodermal activity (EDA) and heart rate variability (HRV), collected from a wearable sensor device. Next, we examined associations between the statistical features extracted from the EDA and HRV signals and patient-reported outcomes.
