Abstract

Objective: Impaired balance is one of the most important risk factors for falls in persons with multiple sclerosis (pwMS). The aim was to evaluate balance and gait performance in pwMS with the absence of clinical disability (pwMS-AD) compared with pwMS with minimal disability (MD) and healthy controls (HC).
