Descriptive Stats and Graph

Inferential Stats

Based off of the data it can be concluded that the Spree can accurately measure body temperature but cannot accurately measure heart rate. This is shown through the p-value of heart rate being 1.27E-2 and the p-value for temperature being .661778.

Design Flaws and Recommendations

Based off of the data it is safe to conclude that spree is inaccurate compared to the gold standard when measuring heart rate. Heart rate can not be accurately measured through a headband placed on the forehead. To improve the readings of the spree, it would be more accurate to place the sensor in a different area of the body such as your wrist or neck. The spree would have to rethink its design as a whole.

Experimental Design of Own Device

To test the accuracy of our device we will compare it to pricking for a glucose level meter, pulse oximetry for oxygen levels, and a device called the Owlet to measure temperature and heart rate. We will test 15 chimpanzees using our device and compare the results with results taken from the glucose level meter, the pulse oximetry, and the owlet to determine the accuracy of our product. When the testing with chimpanzees has completed, we will advance our product to human testing to determine the exact accuracy of our device in human subjects.
