What does the app do?
MS Energise app uses cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT)–based approaches to help people with multiple sclerosis manage their fatigue. It has 7 modules —thoughts, behaviour, emotions, fatigue, body, world, future. Each module has an education section and self-management tools and techniques. The app gives insight into the way behaviour, thoughts, emotions, bodily factors, and the environment can contribute to fatigue. By improving understanding of the illness and changes in thinking and behaviour, users can better manage their condition.
