Biotelemetry technology and its use in monitoring disease progression markers in patients with ALS

Takeaway

  • Monitoring markers of disease progression in those with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) can be enhanced by the usage of biotelemetry technology.

Why this matters

    Wearable technology allows us to gather objective information in regard to a person’s physical activity and disease progression, and does not rely on subjective aspects. As such, in the future, it is very likely that those living with ALS and their healthcare providers will embrace the novel technology of biotelemetry.
