Abstract

The importance of upper limb function in multiple sclerosis (MS) is increasingly recognized, especially for evaluating progressive patients with a reduced mobility. Two sensor-engineered gloves able to quantitatively measure the timing of finger opposition movements was previously used to assess upper limb disability in MS. Aims of the study were: a)to confirm the association between glove parameters and standard measures of MS disability in a larger cohort; b)to assess the correlation with quantitative MRI and quality of life (QoL) measures and c)to determine if the glove-derived parameters offer advantages over to the standard measure for assessing upper limb in MS, namely the Nine-Hole Peg Test (9HPT).
