Exercise Study for Volunteers With and Without Spinal Cord Injuries
The Effect of Acute Exercise on Cerebrovascular, Cardiac Autonomic and Cognitive Functions in Spinal Cord Injury- A Pilot Study
The University at Buffalo (UB) Department of Rehabilitation Sciences is looking for adult volunteers with and without spinal cord injuries to participate in an exercise study. The goal of the study is to learn more about the brain and bodily responses to exercise in people with and without spinal cord injuries. The results of this study will hopefully improve the quality of life for adults with spinal cord injuries.
This study will consist of two visits to the UB South Campus (at Main Steet and Bailey Avenue in Buffalo, NY). Visit 1 will take about 1.5 hours and involves a written agreement to participate in the study, determination of eligibility, and a few surveys. Visit 2 will take about 2.5 hours and will include a hand pedaling task at a moderate exercise level.
This is a cross-sectional study that will examine the effect size of the cerebrovascular, cardiac autonomic, and cognitive measures in individuals with spinal cord injury and non-injured controls pre- and post-acute exercise.
Adults between the ages of 18-55 years old
Adults with a spinal cord injury (at least 6 months after the initial injury)
Adults without a spinal cord injury
Reliable transportation to attend two study visits on the UB South Campus (at Main Street and Bailey Avenue)
