Automated rating of motor dysfunction with video-based pairwise comparison in multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • Video-based pairwise comparison of motor dysfunction allows for reliable and fine-grained capturing of clinical judgment about neurological performance in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Why this matters

    Current rating scales used to measure effect of therapies in neurological diseases are subject to methodological limitations; multiple pairwise comparisons of patient videos provide a basis for development of a consistent quantified metric of motor ability in MS.
