Our first webinar will feature Health Research from Home Lead, Professor Will Dixon, who will explain why our partnership was created and how we plan to revolutionise the future of health research. He will also share how he ran his successful research project, Cloudy With a Chance of Pain? The research showed that people with long-term health conditions are 20% more likely to suffer from pain on days that are humid and windy with low atmospheric pressure. This was done using a smartphone app developed by healthcare software company uMotif, participants recorded daily symptoms while the local weather was determined from location data provided by the smartphone’s GPS.
