Abstract

Objective: It is well known that abnormal automatic postural responses impair balance control in patients with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) and these responses can be ameliorated with training. However, the difference between patients with MS and the healthy population on the adaptation capacity of postural responses to perturbations remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the adaptation capability to postural perturbations in PwMS and to reveal differences between healthy controls.
