This first-of-its-kind app for MS offers individuals a convenient and effective tool to manage the ever-changing course of the disease.
"I am proud that MSAA is able to offer this innovative application to the MS community. My MS Manager provides a one-stop shop for an individual to not only monitor their MS, but also has the capability to include overall health information," states MSAA President and CEO Douglas G. Franklin. "It is exciting for MSAA to be utilizing this new technology allowing us to help more people in more places."
My MS Manager allows an individual to input and store:
Comprehensive medical records
Contact information of your healthcare team
Information about side effects and effective treatment strategies
Important details essential to staying one step ahead of your MS
Descriptions of MS flare-ups, tracking their duration, frequency, and intensity
Michael Yuan, CEO of Ringful Health, is excited to be a part of this initiative to help the MS community. "We are happy to support MSAA's efforts to educate and empower MS patients with tools that help them take more responsibility for their health and maintain continuous communication with physicians anytime and anywhere."

About Multiple Sclerosis - The most common neurological disorder diagnosed in young adults, multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. This disorder damages or destroys the protective covering (known as myelin) surrounding the nerves, causing reduced communication between the brain and nerve pathways. Common symptoms include visual problems, overwhelming fatigue, difficulty with balance and coordination, and various levels of impaired mobility. MS is not contagious or fatal.
