A pilot study of a mobile app to collect magnetic resonance imaging information in patients with multiple sclerosis
This pilot study examines the ability of a mobile application (app) to collect data from active tasks (such as questionnaires, 6Mapp™, COGapp™, VISapp™) and clinical magnetic resonance imaging information to analyze the extent to which genetics impact subjects with multiple sclerosis. Recruitment to the study will be done through different sources: patient advocacy groups, social media tools, clinicaltrials.gov, and flyers.
Keywords: clinical magnetic resonance imaging, multiple sclerosis
This is a virtual study. Participation is not limited to a location.
- Men & Women
We're sorry, but this trial is no longer enrolling volunteers.
12 months (1 year)
6Mapp™ task - This app will track the total distance you can walk in six (6) minutes at a comfortable pace and with minimum interruptions. Each time you take the test, you will be asked and reminded to use the same outdoor route for each assessment.
COGapp™ task – This task will evaluate your ability to pair six symbols with six digits during a 2-minute test.
VISapp™ task – This task will evaluate your ability to see letters and characters accurately. This will take less than 30 seconds to complete.
MRI Images Upload
After 3 months of participation with at least one complete set of measurements at baseline and another follow up set, you will be qualified to participate in the genetic study carried out by a commercial company 23andMe. 23andMe will be free of charge to you.
- Carry a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis
- Possession of smart phone or smart device
- Any concurrent illness that may prevent you from safely completing the tasks
