“How do you use your mobile phone and tablet?”. This is one of the questions which CREAL, a research centre allied to ISGlobal, is attempting to answer in collaboration with several other European research centers. The XMobi-Survey is being implemented within the framework of GERoNiMO, an ambitious European project led by CREAL, which aims is to improve knowledge about potential health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF).
For the purposes of this survey, CREAL is using XMobiSense, an Android application which collects data on the use of the device on which it is installed to obtain a better understanding of the use of mobile communication devices in the general population of the European Union.
"If you have an Android phone or tablet (3 or 4G enabled) you can participate in the study as a volunteer. Just download XMobiSense on your Smartphone. We need volunteers to keep the application installed for a minimum of four weeks in order to obtain representative data on their use of mobile devices", explains Professor Elisabeth Cardis, leader of the study and head of the CREAL Radiation Programme.
