Developing new endpoints for mobility is an important strategic aim for many groups both in industry and academia and the focus of a growing field. Bringing those novel endpoints to health authority acceptance for clinical decision making will require a concerted effort from this research community. This in turn will require openness and transparency; sharing data, methods and findings. Here we discuss challenges within the field to such an open approach and give examples of how they might be overcome.
