STANFORD, Calif. – Researchers at Stanford University’s School of Medicine have launched a clinical study through a free iPhone app to discover better treatments for peripheral artery disease. Participants will use the VascTrac app to take quarterly surveys on their iPhone, as well as occasional tests to measure how far they are able to walk. “By using personalized tracking, participants could get a notification to come in for an ultrasound when physicians see signs of claudication,” said study co-investigator Neil Gandhi in a statement. “This could ultimately improve care.” Participants will also be able to keep a daily activity log on their iPhone. Researchers hope to enroll 2,000 to 5,000 participants in the study.
