ACTRIMS 2024 | An update on transcranial direct current situation (tDCS) in patients with MS

Giuseppina Pilloni, PhD, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, New York, NY, provides an update on her work investigating transcranial direct current situation (tDCS) to improve the mobility of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Safety and tolerability data from the studies conducted were compiled, and the results suggest that independent administration of tDCS can be safely performed by patients at home after four supervised sessions. A larger study is now underway to investigate whether a short but intense intervention of 20 sessions of tDCS paired with exercise will subsequently promote voluntary unsupervised physical activity without encouragement from investigators. This interview took place during the 7th European Headache Congress (EHC) 2023.
