Making life easier and better for Multiple Sclerosis patients
People with multiple sclerosis (MS) can experience symptoms such as loss of balance, extreme fatigue, blurred vision, and problems with memory and concentration. If the disease progresses, they may struggle with a reduced quality of life and loss of independence. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and potentially disabling disease of the central nervous system that affects one million Americans.
Currently, there is no cure. However, the prognosis for people with MS is better than ever before due to treatment breakthroughs, improved health care, and life style changes. The University of Rochester Medical Center is playing a key role in better understanding MS; developing new treatments that improve neurological function, memory, and thinking; and studying how new technologies like telemedicine can improve patient care.
