The goal of this study was to investigate the movement and muscle activity of the upper limb during common activities of daily life in people with Multiple Sclerosis (PwMS) with low and mild-moderate level of upper limb impairments. We found significant changes in muscles activity in PwMS compared to healthy subjects when holding and lifting objects used in everyday life. These differences were particularly remarkable in subjects with moderate level of impairment, in which the disease affected also movement smoothness. Remarkably, the smoothness of the movement during the interaction with common objects of daily activities highly correlated with the subjects' ability measured with the Abilhand scale.
