Acute Effects of Resistance Exercise Among Individuals with MS

Consider taking part in a research study that seeks to examine the acute effects of BFR exercise training on patients with MS. This study involves 4 total visits, each lasting 60-90 minutes. During each visit, surface electromyography, heart rate, and blood flow restriction will be assessed during three types of BFR protocols to gain a better understanding of which is best for this population. This study will take place in the Kinesiology Labs, in the Education Complex on the main campus of the University of Central Florida.
