Telehealth in Motor Neurone Disease (TiM)

November 2014

Telehealth in Motor Neurone Disease (TiM) is a bespoke telehealth system in form of an app to monitor patients’ needs continuously and flag up problems to ensure patients can get the right support at the right time.  The initial trial will recruit 40 patients at the Sheffield MND Care Centre funded by a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) fellowship to trial manager Dr Esther Hobson. This pilot study will assess how well the telehealth system works. If successful, a larger trial will follow with the aim to make this technology widely available to MND patients.
