Share on:


M-Sense has developed a (certified) medical app that helps relatively severe migraine patients to keep track of their symptoms. The purpose of this app is to discover the patient’s specific migraine attack triggers and factors to be able to prevent future attacks. In addition, the application offers suggestions for interventions that prevent attacks.

A study of more than 1,100 users shows that using the app results in a 33% reduction of headache days within 4 months. The aim is to achieve a 50% reduction. The application has been downloaded more than 200,000 times and 52,000 accounts were created. The number of monthly users is more than 23,000 patients. Of these patients, 5,300 use the app daily. The results should ultimately lead to reimbursement by health insurance companies.

The company is currently working on collaborations with pharma companies. Both for collecting so-called Real-World Data as well as for measuring the effectiveness of the app in clinical trials.
