Learn more about the study:

Health Innovation Hub Ireland (HIHI) is supporting a new Irish Femtech start-up (IdentifyHer) in developing a wearable product that detects perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms. This study will assess the feasibility of using a (CE approved) wearable sensor to automatically detect vasomotor events in women.

What’s involved? Women who are experiencing vasomotor symptoms will be asked to wear the sensor for 3 days and record the time of an event on an app while at the same time the sensor will automatically detect and record any vasomotor events.

This data will be collected anonymously and will be used to further develop a wearable device to detect these symptoms in the future, making it easier for clinicians to diagnose perimenopause and provide the best treatment for each woman.

This study has been approved by the UCC Social Research Ethics Committee.

Participants will also be invited to complete a questionnaire on day 4.
