What is the iStep-MS Trial?
We know that being active can reduce levels of fatigue for people with MS, as well as improve fitness and general well being. However it can be difficult to remain active for numerous reasons. The purpose of the iStep-MS trial is to identify a safe and effective way of helping people living with MS to make physical activity part of their everyday life.
This study is being conducted as a collaboration between Brunel University London and the physiotherapy team at the Berkshire MS Therapy Centre. The physiotherapy team at the Therapy Centre will help people with MS to be active along with the guidance of a handbook and a pedometer to keep track of their progress. The research team, based at Brunel University London, will assess both the safety and the benefits of the programme, as well as assessing how easy it is to stick to over time.
