2014-08-27 03:15:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of strength training for the lower extremities and treadmill training on walking ability in persons with Multiple Sclerosis. The study is a randomized control trial with two groups and the intervention is 8 weeks of intensive strength training or treadmill walking. Primary outcome measure is walking ability, secondary outcome measures are balance, work economy and strength.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
