Forecast: To predict a future event
“One of the greatest challenges in rheumatoid arthritis is predicting who will have worsening symptoms or inflammation. It’s exciting to think that by using something as simple as a wearable device we may be able to predict what will happen with someone’s disease and improve their care.”
Robert P. Hirten, MD
