The FitBit Charge HR, a wrist-mounted activity tracker, was “interrogated” to help manage a patient with new onset atrial fibrillation after a seizure.
Researchers used pedometers data to predict detailed exercise information from simple validated activity questionnaires.
For patients given a Fitbit after hospital discharge, those that either didn’t track or intermittently tracked were more likely to be readmitted.
