Managing Mobility Disability in Multiple Sclerosis

Functional Electrical Stimulation Cycling for Managing Mobility Disability in People With Multiple Sclerosis

Mobility impairment is one of the most common, poorly managed, and life altering consequences of MS. Current therapies for managing MS do not prevent the long-term accumulation of mobility impairment, highlighting the need for alternative strategies that prevent or slow progressive mobility disability. The proposed trial will test the efficacy and lasting effects of functional electrical stimulation (FES) cycling as an exercise-based rehabilitation strategy for managing mobility impairment and associated consequences in MS.

FES Cycling Exercise

FES cycling will use self-adhering surface electrodes (Pals Platinum, Fallbrook, CA) placed over the quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteal muscle groups to deliver stimulation to the leg muscles.

Passive Leg Cycling

Passive leg cycling will not involve electrical stimulation
