Research study of a mobile app

Recent research involving people living with MS suggests that keeping track of personal health and wellbeing can be challenging and tedious.


Based on an interview study and analysis of paper bullet journals, we have developed a mobile app that supports self-tracking in a customisable and visual way. You can use the app whenever you wish to track what is important to you (e.g. mood, habits, symptoms, positive things in life, and any related questions you might have). This short video shows how the app could be used:




We are looking for participants who are interested in using the app and providing feedback. Inclusion criteria are: diagnosed with MS; aged 18+ years; living in the UK; and having either an Android or Apple mobile phone. We designed the app to help us understand the individual self-care needs of people living with MS and inform the design of future health technologies.


If you would like to learn more about this research project and participate in the study, please get in touch with Amid ( a.ayobi@cs.ucl.ac.uk ).

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
