MS Energise


The app aims to help people with multiple sclerosis (MS) manage their fatigue using research-proven cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles. The interactive app includes a sleep tracker and an activity tracker. It has modules centred on areas that impact on fatigue – behaviour, thoughts, emotions, body (physiological), world (environmental) and future. Each module has an education section and self-management tips and techniques.

PROS include:

  • Easy to navigate and use.
  • Allows users to record their fatigue and energy levels.
  • Removes barriers to accessing CBT support.
  • Developed by a research project team from the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) and two UK universities.
  • The app is based on the project team’s successful randomised controlled trial (RCT) into the impact of CBT on fatigue, including a pilot of online-delivered CBT.

CONS include:

  • Only available on iTunes as currently not available on Android.
