Abstract

Neuromuscular diseases require a continuous assessment of physical performances by physiotherapists at clinics. However, ICT-based solutions to help the operators in this pivotal task are lacking. Here, we describe a dedicated ICT platform, specifically designed for neuromuscular diseases, able to collect data from validated assessments, including the PUL, the 6MWT, the MFM and the NSAA. The help of physiotherapists was fundamental in its development and the first related feedbacks from the operators on its usage were extremely positive, making PhysioTest a promising tool for present and future use in this specific domain.
