AMBULATORY ASSESSMENT

Ambulatory Assessment comprises the use of field methods to assess the ongoing behavior, physiology, experience and environmental aspects of people in naturalistic or unconstrained settings. Ambulatory Assessment uses ecologically-valid tools to understand biopsychosocial processes as they unfold naturally in time and in context.

 

METHODS

Ambulatory Assessment covers a range of real-time data capture methodologies that originate from different scientific disciplines (psychology, medicine, computer science, etc.). These methodologies include but are not limited to:

talk

Experience sampling and ecological momentary assessment 

diary

Repeated-entry diary techniques 

heart

Monitoring of physiological function, in combination with or without activity/movement  

ambient1

Acquisition of ambient environmental parameters
