An Observational Study on Crying and Fussing Events in Babies
ObvioHealth was asked to conduct an observational study of infant crying and fussing.
Caregivers recorded their infants’ crying /fussing and used the ObvioHealth app to feedback their perception of each event through daily questionnaires and e-diaries. Mandatory training and ongoing communication with subjects minimized user-interface issues and improved data integrity.
Reported crying/fussing frequency and duration was 2-3 times higher than audio-recorded events. Results provided insights into device functionality and human bias.
