The Multiple Sclerosis Performance Test: An Innovative Approach To Measuring MS-Related Manual Dexterity Impairment (P3.132)

CONCLUSIONS: MSPT provides reliable, sensitive, clinically-meaningful data on manual dexterity in MS patients. MSPT manual dexterity testing demonstrates favorable performance characteristics compared with technician 9HPT, and allows exploration of novel metrics. MSPT is an attractive new tool for measuring MS-related impairments in research and clinical settings, with the potential to provide reliable data at lower cost, more frequent intervals, in the patient’s home environment, and to integrate directly into research databases or the electronic health record.Study Supported by: Novartis PharmaceuticalsDisclosure: Dr. Bethoux has received personal compensation for activities with Acorda Therapeutics, Biogen Idec, Merz Pharma, Medtronic Inc., and Allergan, Inc.
