Descriptive Stats and Graph

1) Oral Thermometer

Gold Standard Measurements for Temperature:

Inferential Stats

1) Oral Thermometer and Spree Band

Pearsons-R: .193809

T-Test: 1.83061E-21


2) Pulse Ox and Spree Band

Pearsons-R: .68806

T-Test: .421816

Design Flaws and Recommendations

When comparing the oral thermometer and spree band, the r-value is .193809. This means that there is a positive correlation between the two, however it is not very strong. The t-test has a value of 1.83061E-21, which is very small, meaning that the values are not significantly similar. Therefore, the spree band does not do a good job of providing data.

Heart Rate:
When comparing the pulse ox and spree band, the r-value is .68806. This means that there is a very strong positive correlation between the two. The t-test has a value of .421816, meaning that the values are significantly similar. Therefore, the spree band does do a good job of providing data.

Experimental Design of Own Device

Sample Size: 150 people
-50 people with Lyme Disease
-50 people that are assumed not to have lyme disease
-50 people that are unknown/possibly early stages of lyme disease

Western Blot Test vs Our Dectectorator

Test 1: Test 50 with Lyme Disease with both test.
-This would measure the accuracy of our device and see if it can detect lyme disease.

Test 2: Test the 50 people without the Lyme Disease
-To see if there is any false detections, check up with subjects in a month when antibodies for Borrelia Burgdorferi (Lyme Disease bacteria) have been given time to develop to determine accuracy. The patients must be kept track of to make sure they don't enter a high risk environment (wilderness, forest, out of country, anywhere with high population of ticks) within that month. This extra step would help to lower the chance of having any discrepancies in the data.

Test 3: Test 50 people who are unknown to have Lyme Disease with both the Western Blot Test and ours.
-Western Bot Testing has a difficulty detecting Lyme Disease in the early stages and accuracy in general. This experiment would help disassociate the two detection tests by comparing their accuracy in the early stages. Any would help prove if our test has a better accuracy overall.

Repeat multiple times.
