ALS Radcliff Study:

Multi-disciplinary focus

We are looking for Individuals with early symptom who have been diagnosed with Possible, Probable or  Definite ALS

Our IRB approved study is motivated by the need for early detection and improved prognostic accuracy of ALS using advanced computational technology. By participating in this study, you will contribute to a growing large ALS dataset and further improve current assessment & treatment of individuals diagnosed with ALS using physiological signals and objective measurements.

What is the purpose of the study?
This is a fully remote, observational, exploratory, non-controlled, non-drug study in people with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The study seeks to explore whether specific digital measures gathered at home warrant further investigation as tools for monitoring clinical function and disease progression in ALS.  
 
This study is completely remote - all assessments will be completed in your home. The necessary equipment for the study will be sent to your house, which includes:​
  • spirometers for breathing tests

  • feet sensors for walking analysis
    and an android smartphone

     

EverythingALS mobile App will make it easy for you to navigate the study.
The format consists of weekly ALS-FRS-R & proctors sessions with a research co-ordinator

 

 

Your total participation will be 9-12 months
