Understanding Restless Legs Syndrome

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) remains a common, yet often undiagnosed, neurological sensorimotor disorder, despite many years of research and increased disease recognition.

To help drive understanding and disease awareness among physicians and people with RLS, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has launched an initiative to educate about the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of RLS including a major direct-to-consumer advertising campaign.

The company has developed an RLS Simulator a multi-sensory experience simulating a day in the life of an RLS patient to help physicians better understand this complicated condition.

The RLS Simulator may help increase physician awareness of the disturbing symptoms of RLS which is an underdiagnosed neurological sensorimotor disorder, said Professor John W. Winkelman, MD, PhD, Medical Director of the Sleep Health Center of Brigham and Womens Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

While RLS symptoms can vary from person to person, they are generally described as burning, crawling, tingling, or tugging sensations in the legs. The RLS Simulator was designed to mimic the symptoms that many RLS patients experience and helps physicians gain a greater appreciation for the troubling symptoms their patients experience. This is accomplished through an audio-visual first-person narrative synched with simulated RLS sensations delivered through a state-of-the-art custom-made affixed sensory boot. It is the first experiential simulator utilizing three out of the five senses to aid in the communitys understanding of RLS.

We are committed to RLS education to ensure that the physicians better understand RLS and the impact it can have on patients lives, said Paul Fonteyne, executive vice president, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The RLS Simulator was created to help physicians experience first-hand the symptoms and other effects of RLS. We believe this will help imp
