Abstract

Remote health monitoring (RHM) can help save the cost burden of unhealthy lifestyles. Of increased popularity is the use of smartphones to collect data, measure physical activity, and provide coaching and feedback to users. One challenge with this method is to improve adherence to pre- scribed medical regimens. In this paper we present a new battery optimization method that increases the battery life- time of smartphones which monitor physical activity. We designed a system, WANDA-CVD, to test our battery optimization method. The focus of this report describes our in-lab pilot study and a study aimed at reducing cardiovascular disease (CVD) in young women, the Women's Heart Health study. Conclusively, our battery optimization technique improved battery lifetime by 300%. This method also increased participant adherence to the remote health monitoring system in the Women's Heart Health study by 53%.
