Is remote assessment of leukodystrophy patients reliable?

Studies on the functional status of leukodystrophies, a rare class of disorders characterized by severe neuromotor disability, are limited by the need for in-person assessments of mobility. But can remote assessment be useful?

Researchers from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, evaluated the reliability of the Gross Motor Function Measure-88 (GMFM-88) scale by comparing telemedicine to standard in-person assessments of leukodystrophy patients.
