Assessment of Disability in Multiple Sclerosis Using the Kinect-Camera System: A Proof-of-Concept Study (P3.139)

CONCLUSIONS:Kinect can be used in conjunction with tailored image analysis algorithms to discriminate HV and non-affected MS patients from those MS patients with motor dysfunction and probably enable categorizing the levels of motor dysfunctions. This technique has the potential to contribute to a more objective quantification of motor abnormalities in MS. Although results are promising, further evaluation and additional movements are needed.Disclosure: Dr. Souza has received research support from Novartis.
