Real-Time Multiple Sclerosis Tracking App Debuts

How regular testing can fluctuate

Conventional MS testing takes place at a clinic, where physicians perform a battery of tests and ask questions that patients may or may not have immediate responses to. In addition, patients who come in may have biased responses—especially concerning subjective mood and quality of life questions—depending on how severe symptoms are on that given day. The app-based study helps patients to feel more in control of these tests, providing a broader data pool to those seeking to understand MS for research purposes.
