We performed a search to identify available wearable sensors systems that can collect patient health data and have data sharing capabilities. Findings available in “Wearable sensors with possibilities for data exchange: Analyzing status and needs of different actors in mobile health monitoring systems”. We performed an initial search of the Vandrico wearable database, and supplemented the resulting device list with an internet search. In addition to relevant meta-data (i.e. name, description, manufacturer, web-link, etc.) for each device, we also collected data on 13 attributes related to data exchange. I.e. device type, communication interface, data transfer protocol, smartphone and/or PC integration, direct integration to open health platform, 3rd platform integration with open health platform, support for health care system/middleware connection, recorded health data types, integrated sensors, medical device certification, whether or not the use can access collected data, device developer access, and device availability on the market. In addition, we grouped each device into three groups of actors that these devices are relevant for: electronic health record providers, software developers, and patients. The collected data can be used as an overview of available devices for future researchers with interest in the mobile health (mHealth) area.
