We now run a digital biomarker initiative called the Early Detection of FTD (EDoF) study. This aims to develop a series of measures that may be useful for diagnosis and for home monitoring, particularly as outcome measures in trials, and includes:

  • Testing a novel methodology that involves passively measuring smartphone use – a collaborative project with Mindstrong
  • Detailed cognitive testing using a computerised battery on a tablet called Ignite
  • Measurement of eye movements and cognition using a mobile eye tracker
  • Analysis of speech and language through machine learning algorithms
  • Actigraphy and sleep monitoring
  • Gait analysis
