The University of Cyprus Medical School, in collaboration with Embrace Tech, have submitted a publication to the Europe PMC. The publication is titled “Use of wearable sensors to assess compliance of asthmatic children in response to lockdown measures for the COVID-19 epidemic” and the main study is around monitoring and understanding population’s compliance to behavioural changes requested by interventions during an emerging pandemic. In the context of complete lockdown measures, where citizens are advised to reduce their mobility and stay at home, wearable sensors measuring physical activity levels and time spent at home may help quantifying compliance.
The aim of our study was to quantify mobility changes in response to COVID–19 lockdown measures of schoolchildren with asthma in Cyprus and Greece by continuously tracking their location and activity using wearable sensors.
