Support for effective MS fatigue management

Fatigue is the most disabling, invisible multiple sclerosis symptom which is experienced by the majority of people with MS and it affects all spheres of their lives. MS Energise uses a clinically proven approach to help people with MS to maximise their energy.  

Available now on the App Store in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom. Shipping more widely internationally soon.


Behaviour. Thoughts. Emotions. Body. Environment.

MS Energise can help you manage your fatigue better. It consists of seven modules, each with a section in which you will learn some new information, a section in which you will interact with this new knowledge, and a section in which you will apply what you have learnt. 

MS Energise provides a comprehensive coverage of multiple factors that contribute to MS-related fatigue. In MS Energise, we discuss the differences between fatigue and just being tired, and look at the way that behaviour, thoughts, emotions, bodily factors, and the environment around us can all contribute to fatigue. Finally, when you're making effective use of the many self-management techniques in MS Energise, we look at how to maintain these gains into the future.

As you work through the content, each module contains information to Learn, ways to Interact with these ideas, and tools to Apply them in your day-to-day life.


In each Learn section you learn about factors that can influence MS fatigue. 

As you work your way through the app a combination of information, animations and videos will help you identify potential factors that are important for you.


In these parts of the app you will have the opportunity to record your fatigue and energy levels.

You will also be able to create logs of your sleep, activity levels, emotions and thoughts related to your fatigue. This will help you identify patterns that may influence your fatigue.

Your records are then handy that you can access at any time.


In this section you will apply the knowledge you have learnt from the Learn and Interact sections. You will create diaries and set yourself some goals that will ultimately help you manage your fatigue more effectively. You can set yourself reminders for quality rest and activity levels.
