Participants with, without Muliple Sclerosis Needed for Movement Study

Kinesiology researchers are seeking non-smoking, 30- to 65-year-olds with multiple sclerosis (MS) and similarly aged men and women without MS for a new pilot study to determine whether foot tap speed can be developed as a reliable early marker of future mobility problems in people with the disease. The information could be useful to researchers and physicians.

This study involves three visits to the Totman building on campus. The first visit will take about 2.5 hours, and the second and third visits will take about 1 hour each. Visits will be scheduled around your availability, and the researchers will try to schedule them one week apart. Parking is provided next to the building, and transportation can be provided if needed. Upon completion of the study, you will receive a $30 gift card.
