Use of wearable sensors to monitor physical activity, sleep, and symptoms in generalized myasthenia gravis patients


We are using wearable devices to understand myasthenia gravis (MG) in new ways. MG is a neuromuscular disease characterized by changing weakness in muscles. The nature of the disease can make symptom tracking hard. With wearable devices, we can collect information about patients' activities and sleep. We will use this information to understand MG patients' experiences and improve treatments.
