Objective Data Collection

Add physiological data like heart rate to quantify results

Data derived from heart rate, like heart rate variability, have been shown to correlate with human experiences like stress. Utilize objective physiological data to give more depth to your data.


Manage your project and track adherence, all in one place

Never lose track of your participants with the participant adherence tracker. See participants’ progress in real time and send notification reminders to improve data completeness.

Research Highlights

Case Study

Combining Mental Health Treatment with Physiological Biomarker Monitoring to Reduce Risk of Depression

Scientists from Labfront and ThoughtFull came together to launch Project Cheria: a 3-month research study that combined mental health therapy with digital biomarker monitoring to examine the intervention's effectiveness in reducing symptoms of depression.

Significant clinical improvements were seen in the emotional state of the intervention group, offering preliminary support for incorporating physiological data such as physical activity, sleep quality, and heart rate in mental health interventions.

Understanding that mental health insights are still heavily reliant on subjective data, we wanted to enhance our clinician's ability to understand clients' wellbeing by integrating objective data from Garmin wearables coupled with Labfront's platform for in-depth analysis.
