similarly calculated, but from T2/T1av ratios. Differences in baseline (T1) functional mobility and HPA measurements between the GMFCS level groups (II and III) and GPRT and TMT intervention groups were tested by unbalanced 2-way analysis of variance because there were mixed effects of the 2 GMFCS levels

has shown that suspension training improves functional mobility, strength, and balance in the elderly people, 14 and it reduces pain intensity and increases trunk muscles strength in patients with lower back pain. 15 The effectiveness of TRX training has not yet been studied on pwMS. Therefore, the

increase in physical activity strengthens the proprioceptive sensations of the joints and improves one’s ability to adjust balance ( Teixeira et al., 2010 ). Moreover, various motions enhanced functional mobility. Mobility is essential for activities of daily life, and it is fundamental for the prevention

collected at baseline (see Table  1 ). Functional mobility was measured by administering the Timed Up and Go Test, which measures an older adult’s mobility, including balance ( Podsiadlo & Richardson, 1991 ). Faster times indicate better functional performance, and values between 7 and 12 s are considered

defined as participating in ST at least twice a week. This was measured by phoning people 4 weeks after the intervention ceased to determine whether they had continued twice-weekly participation. Secondary outcomes were as follows: functional mobility measured using the TUG ( Podsiadlo & Richardson, 1991
