The award will provide funding for cooling vests to be used in multiple sclerosis research.
Srikant Vallabhajosula, associate professor of physical therapy education, and Crystal Ramsey, assistant professor of physical therapy education and interim director of clinical education, along with second-year Doctor of Physical Therapy students Samantha Everett and Chelsea Comeau, received $1,500 from LSVT Global for their project, “The Effects of an Aerobic and Resistance Training Program with a Cooling Vest on Dual-Task Cost and Fatigability in Persons with Multiple Sclerosis: A Pilot Study.”
The proposed pilot study will investigate the effects of using a cooling vest during a six-week exercise program on dual-task cost and fatigability in persons with multiple sclerosis. There will be two undergraduate students who will also be helping conduct the study. The investigators welcome any potential contacts to help recruit for the study.
