The research objective is to test the feasibility of using an Apple Watch-based system with the capacity to monitor BMT patients' physical activity and other patient reported outcomes at an ongoing basis within the inpatient BMT setting at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center (UKMCC). The central hypothesis in this project is that the Apple Watch-based system designed based on user-centered design principles and the proposed study method will yield high feasibility.
