About

The primary aim of this study was to investigate the effect of dual tasking on upper extremity functions in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) and compare with healthy controls. Additionally, another aim of our study was to compare the cognitive status, quality of life, fatigue and emotional states of individuals with MS and healthy controls.

Full description

The study was carried out at Kutahya Health Sciences University Evliya Çelebi Training and Research Hospital. 30 individuals with MS and 30 healthy controls, aged 18-65, were included in the study. In the evaluation, demographic and clinical data were recorded first. The Minnesota Manual Dexterity Test was used to evaluate the upper extremity function of the participants in single and dual task conditions, and the Dual Task Questionnaire was used to evaluate the difficulties experienced during dual tasks.
