Withings recently launched a research challenge in partnership with Stanford Medicine X. Read on for details on how you can participate in the challenge, and how it can help advance research in healthcare.
Withings, part of the Nokia family, is excited to announce the launch of a Research Challenge in partnership with Stanford Medicine X to help promote medical research on chronic diseases.
Connected health companies like Withings have created innovative devices and mobile applications that are changing the landscape of healthcare for patients, healthcare providers, and researchers. Such connected products can provide researchers with real-time, accurate health data that can be very useful when conducting studies on the prevention and management of chronic diseases.
This Challenge encourages healthcare providers and researchers to submit a research project proposal to study cardiovascular disease using Withings connected devices or the Withings database. The winner or winners of the challenge will receive Withings products to support the study, access to the Withings database, and mentorship from the Withings research team.
Withings will be accepting research project proposals until October 15, 2016. For more information, visit the Stanford Medicine X website.
**Update: The deadline for proposals has been extended to November 15, 2016.**
