with MS -

DALLAS, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a new survey released this week in conjunction with the National MS Society's National Conference, many people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) who experience visual, dexterity, and cognitive challenges report that technology plays a vital role in helping them live with the disease. However, relatively few are using the assistive technologies that could help them overcome many of these challenges.

The survey, which included a representative sample of 2,390 Americans with MS, is the most comprehensive examination ever of the role of technology among people with MS. It is also the first major initiative of the MS Technology Collaborative, which was formed in March 2007 by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Microsoft, and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to better understand how people with MS use technology and to connect them to information and resources to help move their lives forward and manage their disease. A project steering committee of people with MS from across the country oversees the efforts of the MS Technology Collaborative to help ensure that the outcomes from the project address unmet needs of the MS community.

Technology is moving lives forward, but more can be done

Seventy percent of people surveyed said they are interested in keeping up with the latest technology, and nearly half agreed that "technology plays a vital role in helping me live with MS." Those with more severe types of MS, and those facing more pronounced visual, fatigue, cognitive, speech or dexterity challenges place even higher importance on technology in helping to move their lives forward and in staying connected.
