The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of aerobic fitness on the ability of able and disabled older adults to perform daily functional activities. Subjects are tested in their oxygen use patterns as they perform a series of functional tasks (such as walking on stairs) and following a 24-week training program focused on improving the ability to perform daily tasks likely requiring aerobic fitness (such as walking on stairs).

This randomized clinical trial targets 248 community-dwelling older adults with impaired mobility (i.e. walking slowly; gait speed < 1.20 m/s). The trial compares a 12 week "standard-plus"...
In hemiplegic stroke patients, gait performance is affected by impaired walking endurance. Evidence has shown that higher exercise intensity improves cardiovascular fitness, while greater ...
The investigators hypothesize that the degree to which older generally healthy but sedentary men and women improve a number of cardiovascular (CV) disease risk factors with 6 months of hig...
This study will compare bilateral priming followed by task specific training to health care education followed by the same task specific training protocol. The intention is to understand ...
The hypotheses of the study are that children / youth with CP will by possibly use of technical aids be able to perform high intensity endurance training by walking / running on a treadmil...
Endurance performance is the result of optimal training targeting cardiovascular, metabolic, and peripheral muscular adaptations and is coupled to effective nutrition strategies via the use of macronu...
We previously demonstrated that the loss of female hormones induces cardiac and mitochondrial dysfunction in the female heart. Here, we show the impact of endurance training for twelve weeks, a nonpha...
Sex-specific differences in pathophysiology, prevalence, and impact of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors may explain the high cardiovascular mortality rates in women.
This study sought to establish perceptions of elite endurance athletes on the role and worth of altitude training. Elite British endurance runners were surveyed to identify the altitude and hypoxic tr...
Reach training in concert with environmental enrichment provides functional benefits after experimental stroke in rats. The present study extended these findings by assessing whether intensive task-sp...
The co-occurrence of pregnancy and a cardiovascular disease. The disease may precede or follow FERTILIZATION and it may or may not have a deleterious effect on the pregnant woman or FETUS.
The observation and analysis of movements in a task with an emphasis on the amount of time required to perform the task.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE. It also includes cardiac conditioning and SECONDARY PREVENTION in patients with elevated cardiovascular risk profile.
Analyses for a specific enzyme activity, or of the level of a specific enzyme that is used to assess health and disease risk, for early detection of disease or disease prediction, diagnosis, and change in disease status.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Health care is delivered by practitioners in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, a...
