- •Mobility and cognitive impairments associated with multiple sclerosis seriously impact fall risk.
- •Assessing if individuals with MS have difficulties dual tasking enhances fall risk prediction.
- •Accurate prediction of fall risk based on self-reported difficulty of dual tasking is beneficial for early identification and timely intervention for adults with MS.
