We examined the ability of patients with spinal cord injury to undergo adaptations to chronic exercise training (cycle ergometry) invoked by functional electrical stimulation (FES) of the legs. Nine such patients performed incremental and constant work rate exercise before and after exercise training. Exercise sessions averaged 2.1 +/- 0.4/wk, and consisted of 30 min/session of continuous FES recumbent cycling with increasing work rate as tolerated. Peak VO2 and peak work rate significantly… CONTINUE READING
