    ABSTRACT

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also referred to as Motor Neurone Disease in the UK, is the most common of the five motor neuron diseases. Communicating about the behaviour of ALS with a wider audience remains one of the main goals of charities and associated organisations driving medical research and providing care for sufferers of ALS. This work presents a way of employing immersive media in order to illustrate the disease processes that characterise the progress of ALS and thus help raise awareness in the greater public.
