New MultiSim study improves monitoring of treatments for multiple sclerosis patients

Researchers from the MultiSim project based at the University of Sheffield’s Insigneo Institute and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have developed an algorithm that, when paired with wearable sensors, provides more informative and effective monitoring of the way MS patients walk in real life.

The improved monitoring of the way MS patients walk will help clinicians more easily assess the effectiveness of existing treatments and disease progression in MS patients.

The pioneering study, Free-living and laboratory gait characteristics in patients with multiple sclerosis was published on Tuesday 1 May 2018 in the journal, PLOS ONE.
