Study design:Cross-sectional study.Objectives:The main goal of our study was to explore the differences in heart rate variability (HRV) while sitting between able-bodied (AB) participants and paraplegic (P) individuals.Setting:The study was conducted in the Physical Therapy department and the Physical Education and Sports department of the University of Valencia and Vall d’Hebrón Hospital.Methods:To record the HRV, a 1000-Hz Suunto Oy t6 heart rate monitor was used. The data were analyzed in… CONTINUE READING
