The Telehealth in MND system: development and evaluation (TIME)

UK Chief Investigator

Professor Chris McDermott

Research summary

Telehealth in MND (TiM) is a remote monitoring system for people with MND and their carers, who complete regular questionnaires through the system, which are reviewed by healthcare professionals. We also have funding to develop a research-specific TiM system. Therefore, the current service is called TiM-Care and the new system is called TiM-Research. This project aims to develop and evaluate the two systems.

The project is split into four parts:
