    Default Research study opportunity

    Some may be interested in signing up for this research study. You'd get a $25 gift card after completing the study. One of the two principal investigators is Dr. Robert Motl, whose name often appears as an author on MS research papers. This is their announcement:

    The Exercise Neuroscience Research Laboratory at the
    University of Alabama, Birmingham invites you to participate
    in a voluntary study of health behaviors in adults with multiple sclerosis who use wheelchairs.

    What will I do?

    •You will be sent an activity monitor to wear for a period of 7 days
    and links to questionnaires to complete over the 7 days.

    Why is this research important?

    •Very little is known about health behaviors and the impact on
    symptoms in adults with MS who use wheelchairs.

    What’s in it for me?

    •You will be helping others by contributing to ongoing MS research.

    Will I be compensated for my time?
    •Yes! You will receive $25 for participation.


    • Diagnosis of multiple sclerosis
    •Use of a wheelchair ≥50% of the day

    •Willingness to complete questionnaires, wear the accelerometer,
    and return it in a pre-paid envelope via the U.S. Postal Service

    •Internet Access

    For more information, contact Stephanie by
    telephone: (205) 975 1306 or email:
    MS, diagnosed 1980. Avonex 2001-2004. Copaxone 2006-2009.
