Medical Research Scotland - PhD studentship

  MS is a prevalent disease in Scotland with some 10000 sufferers, but treatment options are limited and often only partially effective (Gourraud et al., 2012). MS is known to influence quality of life, but little has been reported in the scientific literature with respect to relationships between exercise interventions and health. Therefore the aim is to investigate the efficacy of a physiotherapy intervention on gait, balance, muscular strength and biochemical markers. Participants’ walking ability, mobility, balance, and muscular strength will be measured using a 3-D motion capture system, force plates and dynamometer.
