Activinsights announce a solution for all Actiwatch users
Activinsights are pleased to announce an instant solution for all sleep and Actiwatch users.
Sleep researchers, clinicians and practitioners can now collect high resolution raw data from the GENEActiv and continue to use the Actiware software for analysis. Activinsights are releasing the capability to turn the GENEActiv .bin files into .AWD files. These .AWD files can then be entered into the existing Actiware software for users to continue to generate double plotted sleep graphs and manipulate data in the way they have always been used to.
The GENEActiv .bin file to .AWD files conversion is an instant solution for anyone interested in objective sleep measurement with actigraphy and beyond. Furthermore, the collection of high-resolution, raw data with the GENEActiv provides users with the additional benefit of future proofing the data set collected. This enables researchers to continue to apply novel analysis techniques to the unfiltered raw data in the future, removes any limitations against black-box algorithms and increases the value of the data collected for future research capabilities. The GENEActiv provides backward capability with Actiware and enables users to use any system going forward.
Digital Health is rightly seen as the answer to many of the challenges facing global healthcare. The role of digital technology in realising the dream of accessible, affordable, and sustainable care has grown across the entire range of health economies in not only serving current needs, but in building the basis for the healthcare of the future: personalised, digital by default and truly patient centric.
The innovations highlighted in the Playbook can offer support to healthcare in a variety of ways from solutions such as from Activinsights to support people at home with self-care apps and wearable technology which all will help transform healthcare, particularly as the Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated the tremendous potential of digital transformation.
Activinsights is featured under the Remote and Virtual Care category, the wearable technology enabling to monitor patients remotely and maintaining the ability to act fast. These digital technology solutions are interventions that can be initiated by a physician and linked to a clinical care pathway. It differs from self-care solutions, which are driven by the empowered citizen. This a UK solution which allows healthcare providers to reduce risk, cost, and readmissions and demands on your health system, while improving the patient experience, by empowering teams to safely monitor, manage and engage patients at home.

Did you know that the use of selection biomarkers in clinical development improves the success rate in every phase (I-III)? And that use of selection biomarkers improves the overall success from Phase I through regulatory approval more than 3-fold? Examples include using tumour markers to select patients for cancer therapy trials or knowing the ejection fraction (EF) for heart failure patients since those with preserved EF behave and respond differently from those with reduced EF.
Unfortunately, many patient selection processes are dependent on an overarching inclusive diagnosis, a subjective rating scale or both. These are opportunities for the use of actigraphy to objectively and precisely characterize the functional status of study candidates. Oncology, neurodegenerative diseases, and many others depend on subjective rating scales for patient selection. For example, oncology subjects are often selected based on an the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Score (ECOG) score.
This score characterizes the ability of a subject to perform daily activities and any restrictions in place. Clinical development studies often select ECOG subjects judged to be ECOG 0, 1 or 2 to ensure that a subject is able to tolerate the study therapy. But performance and functional data from wearable technologies show that what were thought to be homogeneous [ECOG] groups with a given score, in actuality are groups that demonstrate significantly heterogeneity in their total activity, step counts, stairs climbed and other actigraphy metrics.
It is time to consider true functional status as a digital biomarker of patients’ suitability for a given trial. Given the benefit of using selection biomarkers in clinical development, the development and application of digital selection biomarkers through use of wearable sensors and functional assessment in real-world settings could significantly improve both the efficiency and success of clinical development trials. This is especially true in conditions where the selection of study subjects is based on broad diagnosis, subjective classification, surveys and patient-reported outcomes.

Activinsights to Become Digital Solutions Collaborator for new DiME Project
Activinsights to Become Digital Solutions Collaborator for new DiME Project
Activinsights are pleased to announce their involvement as a Digital Solutions Collaborator in a new physical activity project with the Digital Medicine Society (DiME). The project will see Activinsights playing a fundamental part in the development of a core set of digital measures for physical activity that are accepted within the industry.
Measures of physical activity are essential to health that they are emerging as the 6th vital sign for patients. The outcomes of this project will help to better inform decisions about patient care, research, and public health policy across disease areas. By taking an omni-therapeutic approach, we can reduce time and risk, speeding the development of breakthrough therapies for all patients to market.
As a Digital Solution Collaborator, Activinsights will play a critical supporting role, contributing throughout the project team’s process, providing strategic input during multi-stakeholder events and serving as usability testers and early adopters to the core digital measures set.
Dr Raghbir Bains, Activinsights’ Commercial Director also expressed his delight in this new partnership, commenting “We are very excited about this collaboration and the opportunity to work with DiME. They are uniquely positioned to focus the industry’s attention on the core set of digital clinical measures for physical activity to speed the development of the most valuable measures to improve clinical research and patient care. This will be of huge value to clinicians and researchers as they assess patient behaviours.”
Candice Taguibao, Program Lead at Digital Medicine Society also commented, "We are proud that Activinsights has joined this extraordinary and innovative collaboration. Right now, money, time, and effort are spent figuring out what to measure - we have around 80 unique endpoints for physical activity in DiMe’s crowdsourced, living Library of Digital Endpoints. Still, there aren’t even close to 80 different features of physical activity in daily life. We need to pivot to focus on developing the tools and therapeutics needed to bring added value to patients, caregivers, researchers, and product developers."
