OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that hybrid functional electrical stimulation (FES) row training would improve aerobic capacity but that it would remain strongly linked to level of spinal cord lesion because of limited maximal ventilation. DESIGN Longitudinal before-after trial of 6 months of FES row training. SETTING Exercise for persons with disabilities program in a hospitaL. PARTICIPANTS Volunteers (N=14; age range, 21-63y) with complete spinal cord injury (SCI) (T3-11) who are >2… CONTINUE READING
