Background/Aims People with multiple sclerosis show both cognitive and postural impairment, and various static and dynamic postural activities may be affected under conditions of cognitive distraction. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of cognitive dual tasking on the balance and gait motor performance of people with mild multiple sclerosis (Expanded Disability Status Scale score of 2.0 +/- 1.3) and healthy people and to compare these two groups in terms of performing single and dual tasks.
