Part of the Neuromotor Science Research Consortium, the Digital Health Technology Lab is a state-of-the-art laboratory to advance technology and measurement science to capture movement behaviors and health outcomes in the real world. The lab is dedicated to the advancement of person-centered health outcomes using modern measurement approaches, qualitative and psychometric expertise, and development of smart systems of wearable sensors for adaptive data collection. The lab provides support for psychometric and item bank development, qualitative and clinical validation, and technologies to support clinical outcomes assessment, particularly patient-reported outcomes (PROs).

We have strong collaborative ties with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the Shriners Hospitals for Children, and local parent and patient networks, as well as with other academic units at Temple University, including the College of Engineering, the Institute for Survey Research, the College of Public Health’s Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, and the Center for Data Analytics and Biomedical Informatics. The laboratory has three computer workstations, several systems of wearable sensors for physiological data collected in the real world and access to on-site motion capture.
