As such, we regret that not all registrants will be selected to join the study. However, registrants will still be considered for future groups if eligible.

Successful participants will be notified via email and/or mobile phone by 31 December 2023. Instructions for the onboarding process will also be provided during notification.

Participants will need to complete an informed consent form to commence participation in the study. They will then collect the hiSG starter-kit, which comprises the study device and accessories before completing health and lifestyle surveys on the hiSG mobile app.
