ECTRIMS 2022 | Increased use of internet-based technologies in individuals with MS

Yael Goverover, OTR/L, PhD, New York University, New York, NY, outlines the latest updates in the development of interventions aimed at improving everyday functioning and quality of life in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increase in the number of people using internet-based technology in their daily lives, and the same trend has been observed in people with MS. Nowadays, it’s even possible to provide occupational therapy plans over video calls, which allows more patients to have access to these interventions and avoids visits to clinics. However, it’s still essential to consider the barriers faced by some patients, including financial, cognitive, or motor barriers. This interview took place at the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) Congress 2022 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
