Changing physical activity behavior for people with multiple sclerosis: protocol of a randomized controlled feasibility trial (iStep-MS)

  • Published on Nov 15, 2017

Introduction: Although physical activity may reduce disease burden, fatigue and disability, and improve quality of life among people with multiple sclerosis (MS), many people with MS are physically inactive and spend significant time in sedentary behavior. Behavior change interventions may assist people with MS to increase physical activity and reduce ...


Remote Physical Activity Monitoring in Neurological Disease: A Systematic Review

  • Published on April 28, 2016

Objective: To perform a systematic review of studies using remote physical activity monitoring in neurological diseases, highlighting advances and determining gaps. Methods: Studies were systematically identified in PubMed/MEDLINE, CINAHL and SCOPUS from January 2004 to December 2014 that monitored physical activity for 24 hours in adults with neurological diseases. Studies that measured ...



Mobility disability and the pattern of accelerometer-derived sedentary and physical activity behaviors in people with multiple sclerosis

  • Published on Apr 1, 2016

Objective: Low physical activity and high sedentary behavior levels are major concerns in persons with multiple sclerosis (MS) and these differ depending on the level of mobility disability. However, the manner in which daily activity is accumulated is currently unknown in this population. Methods: A secondary analysis was performed on ...


Relationships among physical inactivity, deconditioning, and walking impairment in persons with multiple sclerosis

  • Published on Apr 2015

Background and Purpose: We have previously proposed a conceptual model of physical inactivity, physiological deconditioning, and walking impairment in persons with multiple sclerosis (MS) that suggests engaging in physical activity and improving physiological conditioning may lead to improvements in walking performance. This cross-sectional study examined the nature of associations among ...



Physical activity is associated with cognitive processing speed in persons with multiple sclerosis.

  • Published on May 23, 2016

Abstract: The impairment of cognitive processing speed is common, disabling, and poorly managed in multiple sclerosis (MS). This study examined the association between objectively-measured physical activity and cognitive processing speed (CPS) in a large sample of persons with MS. Patients (N=212) underwent two valid neuropsychological tests of CPS, completed the ...


Is physical behavior affected in fatigued persons with multiple sclerosis?: Physical behavior in multiple sclerosis

  • Published on Sept. 16, 2014

Objective: To study physical behavior (PB) in detail in fatigued persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). Design: case-control explorative study. Setting: Outpatient rehabilitation department. PB monitoring was conducted in participants' daily environment. Participants: Twenty-three fatigued persons with MS were selected from an RCT. Cases were matched to, 23 age- and gender-matched healthy, ...
