Exercise Study for Volunteers With and Without Spinal Cord Injuries
Protocol: STUDY00006517
Full Title
The Effect of Acute Exercise on Cerebrovascular, Cardiac Autonomic and Cognitive Functions in Spinal Cord Injury- A Pilot Study
The University at Buffalo (UB) Department of Rehabilitation Sciences is looking for adult volunteers with and without spinal cord injuries to participate in an exercise study. The goal of the study is to learn more about the brain and bodily responses to exercise in people with and without spinal cord injuries. The results of this study will hopefully improve the quality of life for adults with spinal cord injuries.

This study will consist of two visits to the UB South Campus (at Main Steet and Bailey Avenue in Buffalo, NY). Visit 1 will take about 1.5 hours and involves a written agreement to participate in the study, determination of eligibility, and a few surveys. Visit 2 will take about 2.5 hours and will include a hand pedaling task at a moderate exercise level.
