The aim of the present study was to verify the basic principles underlying the prediction of [Vdot ]O2 peak from a submaximal exercise test performed by paraplegics on a wheelchair ergometer and thus to propose regression equations of [Vdot ]O2 peak prediction. Forty-six paraplegic subjects (mean age = 33.2 ± 8.7 years) with a traumatic lesion (T1–L3) performed a graded exercise test on a wheelchair ergometer until exhaustion. The test started with an initial workload of 0 watts, with an… CONTINUE READING
