Accurate Test of Limb Isometric Strength (ATLIS) in ALS


Brief description of study

A strength measurement device called Accurate Test of Limb Isometric Strength (ATLIS) was developed to precisely and conveniently measure static limb strength in patients with ALS. The investigator will compare ATLIS data with data from the commonly used ALS outcomes measure, the ALS Functional Rating Scale-Revised (ALSFRS-R), as well as an exploratory measure, electrical impedance myography (EIM), in a prospective, longitudinal study. Both outcomes measures will be performed on 100 subjects collected preferably at bi-monthly clinic visits during the study period.

Detailed Study Description

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center will enroll and collect data on 100 subjects. Subjects will ideally be tested every 1 to 4 months according to each patient's site visit schedule. Subjects will be tested at each visit using ATLIS, the ALSFRS-R questionnaire and EIM.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT02374606
