Description

The GET Smart study is looking at whether exercise has an impact on cognition in people with MS. Researchers at the University of Washington are studying exercise because other studies have shown that exercise can help cognition in other non-MS populations. However, currently we do not know whether exercise can help cognition in people with MS.

As part of this study you will receive either, 1) aerobic exercise training, or 2) stretching and toning training, up to an hour per session, three times per week, over six months.  Also, you will complete four in-person assessments that include neuropsychological tests and a fitness test. You will be compensated for your participation.

You may be eligible for this study if you are:

• 18-59 years old
• Able to walk unassisted for at least 100 meters
• At least six months out from your diagnosis of MS
• Live in the Seattle, WA or Tacoma, WA area

This study has been approved by the University of Washington Institutional Review Board: Protocol #46598. If you would like to learn more about this study please contact our study team at 1-855-320-7926 or cmc37@uw.edu.
