GOALS OF THE STOPWATCH PROJECT
- StopWatch is a project aimed at developing a tool for young people with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) using the Apple Watch. We are enrolling youth ages 8 through 17 who currently have a diagnosis of ADHD.
- While the research in this area is not fully clear, the pervasiveness of distractions from technology is often blamed for causing distractibility and worsening symptoms of ADHD. Our goal is to use technology to support and enhance the experience of young people with ADHD.
- ADHD is a common disorder that, among other symptoms, affects a person’s ability to ignore distractions and stay engaged in a task. Many people with the disorder, especially children, also have difficulty remaining still.
- Our lab is partnering with the Stanford Center for Digital Health to develop an Apple Watch app that will use the features of the watch to monitor movement and deliver feedback about inattention and hyperactivity to the wearer.
