Celebrating two years of using wearables and specific mobile apps to deliver patient monitoring outside of the hospital.

Reflection from Founder & CEO

I couldn’t be prouder of what we have achieved as a team at aparito over the last two years. In partnership with many great individuals and organisations, we have initiated five studies, in four different diseases across three countries. Through our work to date, I am more convinced than ever that our tech solution will go a long way towards improving the conduct of clinical trials and the effectiveness of managing routine care for paediatric patients and people living with rare diseases in particular. As we approach Rare Disease Day on the 28th of February, we look forward to continuing our work in the rare disease community and to collaborating further in order to make a positive impact to patients and their families. 

With sincere thanks to all that have helped us so far - this is very much a collaborative effort.

Warm Wishes,
Our Studies 2016

In partnership with National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases Association, aparito is being used at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in America to investigate the natural history of Gangliosidoses (GM1, GM2). This investigation started in August 2016.

Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals are using aparito to monitor patients with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis between hospital visits in a POC study. This began in November 2016.

In partnership with Niemann-Pick UK and International Niemann Pick Disease Alliance, aparito has been contracted by Actelion Pharmaceuticals to monitor patients with Niemann-Pick Type C (NPC). This study began in February 2016 at Great Ormond Street Hospital and later at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The Gaucher Association UK collaborated with aparito to develop a disease specific app for patients with neuronopathic Gaucher Disease to report their own experience of their condition. This was funded by Genzyme and Shire and began in June 2016 at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The Lysosomal Storage Disorder Society collaborated with aparito to investigate remote monitoring of participants with Gaucher disease across India. This user testing spanned a month from January 2016 and will initiate again February 2017.
