UK Biobank is currently inviting approximately 100 000 of its participants to visit one of its imaging centres located across the UK to undergo a number of imaging (MRI, DEXA, ultrasound) measures and to participate in a repeat of certain baseline measures (the UK Biobank Imaging Project).
As part of the visit, UK Biobank is interested to obtain longer term (1 to 2 week duration) heart rhythm data on a subset of these participants. UK Biobank is looking for a single supplier that can provide devices and services to enable this project, for the anticipated 3 year duration of the project.
