ECTRIMS 2023 | Passive monitoring in MS: potential and pitfalls

Giancarlo Comi, MD, Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy, delves into the potential of passive monitoring devices in tracking the progression of multiple sclerosis (MS). While active monitoring has often been met with resistance by patients, passive monitoring offers a less intrusive method of collecting essential parameters. This includes metrics like working abilities, sleep quality, and indicators linked to fatigue. Such devices allow for continuous assessment, potentially mitigating amnestic issues. While Prof. Comi reiterates the irreplaceable value of face-to-face clinical visits, he argues for the complementary role of technology in enhancing patient understanding. The European community-backed study is highlighted as an ongoing investigation into this device-patient combination, alongside mentions of preliminary studies. This interview took place at the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) Congress 2023 in Milan, Italy.
