Help leading Irish researchers learn more about MS

Research Study CLOSED

MS Ireland is supporting the University of Limerick in their latest research study and you are invited to take part. The aim of the study is to explore the feasibility and acceptability of using smart phone technology for healthcare purposes in people with Multiple Sclerosis. If you have a diagnosis of MS from a neurologist and are over age 18 you are eligible to participate.

The questionnaire looks at your use of smart phones, your abilities in relation to smart phones, your attitudes towards the use of smartphone technology in healthcare and any concerns you may have in using smartphone technology for healthcare. It should only take approximately 15 minutes to complete the questionnaire. 

Your views are important and findings from this study may help inform future clinical practice for people with Multiple Sclerosis. If you would like to complete this questionnaire at a time and place convenient to you, please click on the following link:

More Research Opportunities:

Marcin Uszynski and Dr Susan Coote are calling on participants to get involved with a pilot research study titled, 'The effects of 12 weeks of Whole Body Vibration intervention on muscle strength, sensation and other clinical variables in people with Multiple Sclerosis'.

Get involved if you are able/willing to travel to Galway for the programme. Read more>>>
