Physical Activity in Persons
with Multiple Sclerosis
Researchers from the department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University are recruiting participants for a study to examine barriers to physical activity in persons with MS at different levels of disability to develop intervention strategies for increasing physical activity.
You can participate in this study if you are an adult (aged 21-75) with a clinical diagnosis of MS, not have experienced a relapse of disease symptoms in the last three months, and able to walk at least 100 m without assistance.
Participants will be asked to attend a total of three sessions (1 hr, 1.5 hr, 1,5 hr) and undergo a series of baseline testing and questionnaires, as well be tested for muscular performance. Participants are asked to wear a device to track their physical activity levels. The testing will take place at the Center for Neurorehabilitation services (CNS) in Fort Collins, as well as the Integrative Neurophysiology, Neuromuscular Performance, and Clinical Biomechanics Labs on the CSU Campus.
This research study will be used to assist specialists with future rehabilitative techniques. You may also receive recommendations for exercise and strategies to increase your levels of physical activity. You will be provided with your body composition and exercise performance results upon completion of the study.
