Mobile App Development on

Apple’s ResearchKit

Apple ResearchKit is an open source software framework that will allow developers to create iPhone apps apps that can be used to collect data for medical research. This promises to bring the mobile ‘anytime anywhere’ ability to medical research data collection.

ResearchKit Modules

ResearchKit provides three modules that can be customized and built upon by the app developers. These modules provide base functionality for items commonly needed in medical research such as surveys, participant consent and simple active tasks that users perform such as walking, sitting and talking. The data generated by the surveys and active tasks is then made available to the researchers to analyze.
