MS and Exercise Study Seeking Participants

Participants Are Needed for an Exercise Study for People with Multiple Sclerosis

Researchers from the Neurophysiology of Movement Laboratory on the University of Colorado Boulder campus and the Multiple Sclerosis Center on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus are conducting a study to investigate the capacity of neuromuscular electrical stimulation to improve walking in persons with multiple sclerosis.

You may be eligible to participate if you:

• Are between18-60 years of age
• Have clinically confirmed diagnosis of MS
• Are able to walk, but may have some difficulty walking

Eligible participants will receive a new type of neuromuscular electrical stimulation

The study will involve 3 evaluation and 18 treatment sessions over 3 months:

Evaluation (~ 2 hours per session)
o Assess muscle strength and walking ability
o Two sessions on three occasions: before treatment and at 0, and 1 months after treatment

Treatment (~45 min per session)
o Three times per week for six weeks

Participants will be compensated up to $500
