MSCopilot® is a medical device for patients with MS. This mobile application allows you to self-assess yourself at home between each consultation. MSCopilot® adapts to smartphones the standard tests that your neurologist uses to assess the progression of your MS. Now you can do them at home whenever it suits you, at regular intervals and several times a year.
By using the application, you become an actor in the management of your MS and can more easily discuss your symptoms with your neurologist.
MSCopilot® allows you to perform the following tests:
1. Walk test:
Measurement of walking perimeter and other parameters
2. Dexterity test:
Measurement of fine motor skills (right hand, left hand) by drawing lines on the screen
3. Cognition test:
Measurement of attentional abilities and processing speed by matching symbols to numbers
Every 3 months
4. Low contrast vision test
Measurement of low-contrast visual acuity by reading numbers of decreasing size
Every 3 months
