ACTRIMS 2024 | GAIT-HUB: a home-based gait monitoring system for patients with MS

Giuseppina Pilloni, PhD, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, New York, NY, presents a validation study on the Gait Assessment with Innovative Technologies – Home Use Benefit (GAIT-HUB) system for home-based mobility assessments in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Patients were provided with a home kit consisting of an iPad and shoelace sensors, which they used under clinician supervision to monitor their gait. While demonstrating feasibility, the study revealed issues with sensor positioning and kit usability. Dr Pilloni suggests future iterations involving a sensor system placed in a pocket rather than on shoelaces, and incorporating patient feedback to enhance usability. This interview took place during the annual ACTRIMS Forum 2024.
