Assessment of gait and balance in persons with multiple sclerosis using wireless sensors
The long-term goal of this research is to develop a novel, instrumented, clinical assessment tool for patients with multiple sclerosis to assess gait and balance deficits. Funding: National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Neurophysiological mechanisms contribute to gait and balance impairment in persons with multiple sclerosis
The goal of this project is to understand the neurophysiological disease mechanisms which contribute to movement disability in persons with multiple sclerosis in order to identify individuals who will require treatment for gait and balance deficits and who will be responsive to specific therapies.
