The effect of passive cycling on cardiac function and spasticity
Will a machine pedaling your legs help your heart?
We are conducting a research study to find the answer. We are looking for men and women aged 19-50 years with and without Spinal Cord Injury to take part in a study examining the effects of passive and active cycling on the heart.
You can help improve the treatment of spinal cord injuries, strokes, and other neurologic illness.
Your participation in this study will involve tests of your heart function, and will take about 1.5 hours. This will be done while you sit in a wheelchair and have your feet pedaled by a bicycle-like machine.
