Background and Aims: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of eight weeks of TRX training on the balance, fatigue intensity, speed, and muscle strength of women with multiple sclerosis.
Materials and Methods: In the current study, a semi-experimental study with pretest-posttest design with an intervention group and a control group was carried out. The statistical population of the present study was all women with MS within the age range of 20 to 40 years old in Tehran who are members of the MS Society of Iran. The sample included 24 women, aged 20-40 years old, and a disability score between 0 - 4.5 who were recruited via nonprobability and availabile saimpling method. Participants were randomly assigned to TRX training (n=12) and control group (n=12). Muscle strength, dynamic balance, as well as speed and fatigue intensity were also measured in the statistical population. In the end, we used descriptive statistics to describe the data of each group and to determine the center of gravity using mean and standard deviation. The Shapiroilk test was used to check the normality of the data, and to compare the differences between the control and experimental groups, independent t-test was used at the alpha level of 95% (p<0.05).
Results: The results showed that eight weeks of TRX training had a significant effect on muscle strength, fatigue intensity, and the rate and balance of women with multiple sclerosis.
Conclusion: According to the results, it seems that TRX training affects the balance, fatigue intensity, muscle strength, and muscle strength of women with multiple sclerosis, and it is suggested that our findings be used to treat the disease.
