Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system that is most common in young adulthood resulting in different gait disorders. My research focuses on identifying biomarkers in the form of gait characteristics in patients with multiple sclerosis. Patients are equipped with inertial measurement units (IMU) from which objective spatio-temporal gait parameters can be obtained and analyzed. This can be used both for the assessment of the current state of the disease and for the prediction of the further course of the disease in the form of relapses. Furthermore, this could significantly slow down the course of the disease and possibly delay the accompanying mobility impairment over a very long period of time.
