Brief Summary:
This is an observational study to investigate if it is feasible to recruit 100 patients receiving radiotherapy (RT) to metastatic disease to wear Hexoskin and if Hexoskin will facilitate the monitoring, detection and early treatment of RT-related side effects.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Metastatic Cancer Palliative Device: Hexoskin Medical System

Detailed Description:
Radiotherapy is an important adjunct in the interdisciplinary care of the palliative patient population, providing the potential for improved quality of life and symptom control, often translating into improved well-being, function and mobility. Changes in pain and QOL are frequently measured subjectively using patient-reported questionnaires. Objective measures such as respiratory rate, pulse rate, activity level and sleep duration and quality, may complement the currently available tools. Such tools may lead to better evaluation of the effects of palliative RT with real-time detection of potential complications and toxicity and the acute need for analgesic adjustments that can result from successful palliative RT.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 100 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Patient Reported Outcomes/Metrics Program Trial - Palliative Radiation
Actual Study Start Date : November 24, 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 2023
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 2023

Intervention Details:
  • Device: Hexoskin Medical System
    Hexoskin is a smart shirt that can detect heart rates, lung function and physical activity of patients before and after radiotherapy.
    Other Name: Hexoskin Smart Shirt

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of patient accrual [ Time Frame: Over 12 months ]
    Feasibility of accruing 100 patients to the study

  2. Frequency of radiotherapy related adverse events [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Frequency of grade 2 or above radiotherapy related adverse events with extended monitoring.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALY) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Perform economic and health technology assessment using EuroQol-5 Dimension-5 Level (EQ-5D-5L) health questionnaire. (100 is the best health a patient can imagine while 0 is the worst health a patient can imgaine.)

  2. Health Related Quality of Life (QOL) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Perform Health Related Quality of Life using EORTC QLQ-C30 and rate electronic survey completion.

  3. Number of Trial Refusals [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Evaluate reasons for trial refusal

  4. Complete follow-ups [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Rate of completed follow-ups

  5. Patient experience and satisfaction [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Measure patient experience and satisfaction using mobile app (Zamplo) and Hexoskin

  6. Patient Adherence [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Patient adherence to using the Hexoskin Medical System

  7. Hexoskin data collection rates [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Feasibility of data collection using the Hexoskin Medical System

  8. Quality of Life (QOL) survey completion [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Rate of Quality of Life (QOL) survey completion on mobile app (Zamplo)

  9. Overall survival of participants [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Overall survival time is calculated from study enrollment to date of death or last follow-up

  10. Characterize adverse event profile [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    Characterize adverse event profile of various radiotherapy regimens given for metastases
