OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of increasing effort on energy cost as measured by oxygen consumption (VO2) during cycling exercise in individuals early after acquired brain injury (ABI). DESIGN An experimental correlation design. SETTING Specialist neurorehabilitation centre. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-eight individuals were recruited early after acquired brain injury. Nine individuals had spasticity; Ashworth Scale >1 in either upper or lower limbs. INTERVENTION The VO2 was measured in… CONTINUE READING
