 Research and Scholarship Interests

Funded Activity

Hebert JR, Schenkman M (Co-PIs) National MS Society 10/01/12- 09/30/15 This randomized clinical trial is designed to examine the impact of vision and balance training on fatigue and postural control of individuals with multiple sclerosis. Effort: 15%

Schenkman M (PI), Hebert J, Corboy J. The effects of vestibular rehabilitation on MS-related fatigue: randomized control trial. National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Pilot Research Award: PP1501], 2/08-12/31/09. ($43,774). RCT that examines the benefits of vestibular exercise for people with PD. Role: Co-investigator and study coordinator. Effort: 25% (See below for more information).

Other Research and Scholarly Activity

Hebert J. Effects of vestibular rehabilitation on MS-related fatigue: randomized control trial. Purpose and primary specific aims: Fourteen week trial designed to determine the effects of a novel approach to the treatment of patients with Multiple Sclerosis. Outcomes include: self-reported fatigue, dizziness and instability, depression, standing-upright control (balance) based on results from Computerized Sensory Organizational Test, and dynamic mobility based on results from Six Minute Walk Test. Three study groups are included: Vestibular Rehabilitation and energy conservation education (Experimental Group), aerobic and stretching and energy conservation education (Exercise Control Group), and non-treatment (Wait-listed Control Group).
Role: Lead investigator, study coordinator. Study began November 2007, before funding was received from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Status: Closed and completed November 2010.

Hebert J. Multiple Sclerosis Pilot: Muscle Fatigue
Purpose: Pilot investigation to determine the response to fatiguing activity in the leg muscles in persons with Multiple Sclerosis. Study began August 2009. Main Sponsor: University of Colorado – Boulder (UCB)
Role: collaborator; prospective subject recruitment. Status: Closed and completed August 2009.

Hebert J. The association between balance and multiple sclerosis fatigue: a correlational pilot study.
