Abstract

As their illness progresses, patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) may suffer from motor impairments. In the present study, we examined the effectiveness of three interventions for learning a bimanual coordination task: Virtual reality training (VRT), conventional physical training (CPT), and the combination of VRT and CPT (COMB). A total of 45 women with MS were randomly assigned to one of the following study conditions: VRT, CPT or COMB. Bimanual coordination was assessed at baseline, eight weeks later at study completion, and 4 weeks after that at follow-up. Bimanual coordination improved over time from baseline to study completion and to follow-up. Compared to the VRT and CPT conditions, the COMB condition led to higher coordination accuracy and consistency. The combination thus appears to have the potential to speed up the recovery of motor control and rehabilitation of women with MS.
