“Volunteers needed for local research study” Physical activity for people with multiple sclerosis living in rural settings

In this research, we wish to investigate if interventions to increase physical activity are acceptable and beneficial to people with multiple sclerosis living in a rural area. The interventions will be delivered by a physiotherapist at the person’s home  (face-to-face AND on-line). The intervention lasts for 24 weeks. Following the intervention, we will measure physical activity participation, general health, and wellbeing at five different intervals over  a one year period. To be eligible for this study: We are seeking adults with MS, who live rurally in Otago, Central Otago, and Southland. Volunteers will have to have internet access and basic computer skills (or have somebody that lives with them who can help them operate a computer).
