PURPOSE Studies investigating vascular adaptations in non-exercised areas during whole body exercise training show conflicting results. Individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) provide a unique model to examine vascular adaptations in active tissue vs adjacent inactive areas. The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of 4 wk of voluntary arm and electrically stimulated leg exercise (8-12 sessions) on vascular adaptations in active areas (thigh and arms) and inactive areas (calf… CONTINUE READING
