Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated disease of the central nervous system (CNS). Onset of the disease is usually between 20 and 40 years of age, and it is the leading nontraumatic cause of nervous system disability in young adults. MS is clinically characterized by repeated subacute episodes (relapses) of nervous system symptoms and signs followed by remission, relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) (80–90% of cases) or insidious progression from onset, primary progressive MS (PPMS) (10–20% of cases).

Rehabilitation Systems
Can help MS patients regain their mobility and improve their quality of life

MS and Rehabilitation

There is no cure for MS, but a number of medications are used to alleviate symptoms and reduce the frequency of relapses and generally slow the progress of the disease.


Modern rehabilitation systems can help MS patients regain their mobility and freedom. These systems can:

Reeducate muscles

Prevent muscle loss (atrophy)

Maintain or increase range of motion of joints

Increase local circulation

Improve walking speed and stability and reduce falls
