Description

Falls are common in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), and current rehabilitation approaches to reduce falls are inadequate. A novel and promising rehabilitation training program: Protective step training (in which a person is exposed to repeated "slips") has been developed to reduce falls, but its effectiveness in people with MS is poorly understood. This project will assess whether people with MS improve balance and reduce falls through 2-weeks of protective step training. Studies testing the effect of promising therapies, such as protective step training, have the potential to reduce the frequency and burden of falls in people with MS. The project will include up to 12 visits (6 training and 6 testing visits) to the Arizona State University - Downtown Phoenix campus over the course of about 18 weeks. You will receive compensation. All interested participants will be screened by the research team to ensure they are eligible to participate.
