Description

Previous studies have shown that persons with MS have better gait endurance and less fatigue if they practice walking intermittently rather than continuously. The purpose of this study is to determine what is the difference in gait characteristics between intermittent and continuous walking, to determine why intermittent walking is superior to continuous walking in persons with MS.
