Prediction of oxygen uptake during walking in ambulatory persons with multiple sclerosis

Stamatis Agiovlasitis, PhD, et al.

This study developed an equation for predicting the energy expenditure during walking in persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). Predictors were walking speed and the 12-item Multiple Sclerosis Walking Scale–an index of walking problems. The prediction equation developed had relatively small error. Rehabilitation professionals and researchers should refrain from using equations that have not been developed in persons with MS. Rehabilitation professionals could cautiously use the presently developed formula when designing exercise programs for persons with MS. Well-designed programs may encourage persons with MS to engage in physical activity and experience its benefits on health.
