... Most publications (19 out of 25, or 76% of publications) included in descriptive synthesis (Table 1), semi-structured synthesis (mmc1), and structured, machine-searchable synthesis (mmc2) utilized mHealth apps, or apps in conjunction with various online platforms or web portals. The remaining publications [31][32][33][34][35][36] utilized combinations of different standalone digital sensors (that is, without integration by an app) or a single digital sensor. ...
