Over the last two decades, the use of body maps has increased in clinical trials. Body maps can be incorporated into electronic diaries and questionnaires, offering a multifaceted and integrated approach to patient symptom location reporting. These electronic clinical outcome assessment (eCOA) body maps offer enhanced reliability, efficiency in data acquisition and are often preferred by users. However, body maps can vary widely in their visual appearance and layout, from simplistic to extremely detailed.
What is an ideal body map?
To identify the ideal body map look and functionality, CRF Health conducted a usability study with participants of varied age, technology confidence, and dexterity capabilities. This eBook outlines the findings from that study and provides recommendations for implementing effective body maps in your clinical study.
