MADISON (WKOW) -- UW researchers are conducting work that could offer help for those with neuromuscular conditions like multiple sclerosis.
Karen Frauly came all the way from Minneapolis to participate. She's had MS for the past 30 years and it has become worse within the past three years.
As part of the study, researchers will use a new type of electrical device to try and stimulate and improve Karen's muscle coordination.
Monday, Karen underwent testing to set a baseline for her motor and cognitive skills. Barbara Vaughan will be following her progress over the next couple of weeks to see what kinds of changes take place.
Researchers hope their findings will eventually offer hope to stroke victims, Parkinson's patients and even those with Alzheimer's disease.
