HeatBeat

Replacing anxiety with confidence for multiple sclerosis patients in their daily lives

Uhthoff’s Phenomenon is the worsening of neurologic symptoms in multiple sclerosis and other neurological, demyelinating conditions when the body gets overheated due to hot weather, exercise, or even saunas. HeatBeat is a device that monitors the body temperature and pulse to help people with MS understand their body reactions to their daily activities. It provides them with data patterns that they can analyse or consult with researchers and doctors to better understand the effect of their lifestyle and geography on their illness.
