As part of the NHMRC Motor Impairment grant we are investigating the role that sleep disruption plays in people with Multiple Sclerosis.
The SafeTrip study aims to investigate how older adults learn protective stepping skills to avoid falls when encountering obstacles, trips and slips. With NeuRA’s cutting-edge motion capture system and other wearable devices, the SafeTrip team will be able to observe and analyse movement and muscle activity during reactive or proactive step training.
The SafeTrip team are looking for older adults aged 65 years and over who:
Eligible candidates will be invited to NeuRA for baseline assessment before being randomly allocated to either the reactive or proactive step training programs. All participants will undertake at least 3 training sessions, however, depending on their allocation, may be invited to undertake 1-3 additional training sessions throughout the year.

This project, sponsored by MS research Australia, focuses on sleep apnoea in people with multiple sclerosis (MS). Our recent study, amongst other studies, suggests that sleep apnoea rates are higher in people with MS. However little is known about the causes of sleep apnoea in people with MS and how they might be different from people without MS. This project involves a sleep study including physiological measurements to identify differences in the causes of sleep apnoea between people with and without MS.
