Effects of footwear cushioning on walking performance in females with multiple sclerosis, The
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and progressive neurodegenerative disease which incurs a multitude of walking impairments. Protective strategies targeted at maintaining postural stability during walking include increasing stance and double support time with reciprocal decreases in swing and single support time, however these adaptions inadvertently increase fall risk. The midsole construct of footwear has demonstrated the ability to mediate these deficits in running but has not been explored in a neurologic population with known fall risk. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects ...
