Using smart devices to
accelerate research

Smartphones and the Internet of Things are changing how patients
take care of themselves, how they interact with professionals,
but also how research is conducted.

Our smart devices

Withings creates products and apps aimed at helping users watching their health. Withings has developed an ecosystem of connected devices that allow measuring wirelessly and in real-time a broad range of parameters, from the physical activity level to the blood pressure, including the weight and the heart rate.

New Horizons for Research

Connected devices open up a whole new world of possibilities for research

Real-life User Data

Accelerated Research Roll-Out

Recruitment of Large Cohorts

Significant Cost Decrease

For Patients

Data is collected seamlessly and in real-time. Errors and bias typical of self-reported data are avoided with smart devices. Withings applications offer users the optimal user experience, giving them access to the widest possible range of metrics and content validated with scientists.

For Researchers

Connected objects facilite cohort recruitment and real-life data collection at scales difficult to imagine before in research, both in terms of cohort size and geographies. Data collection and treatment is secured on our dedicated platform. Our notification system lets researchers tailor their questions, notification, content and time of messaging according to unique study protocols.

Partner research use cases

Stanford University

Prof. David Michael Axelrod uses “Baby Scales” at the hospital of the Stanford University for his pediatric, pediatric cardiology and general cardiology studies.

University College Dublin (UCD)

Withings blood pressure monitors, scales and trackers are being used in a study of pregnant women suffering from type 2 diabetes.
