CONy 2024 | The potential of wearables for continuous activity monitoring in MS

Giancarlo Comi, MD, Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy, comments on the potential of wearable and continuous activity monitoring for disability progression assessment in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Prof. Comi emphasizes the need to pay close attention to the daily life and activity trends of patients with MS. This can be done through questionnaires; however, this relies on the accuracy of patient-reported data, and individuals are prone to under- or over-report when placed in an artificial environment such as the clinic. Using wearable devices can allow researchers and physicians to capture even subtle changes in the activity of patients and paint a more detailed picture of the disability progression of an individual with MS. This interview took place at the 18th Annual Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy 2024) in London, UK.
