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...
Different modalities of strength training cause performance enhancements, which are specific for the trained task. However, the involved mechanisms are still largely unknown. It has been demonstrated ...
Specific physical training in elite team handball is essential for optimal player's performance; however, scientific knowledge is generally based on temporary training studies with sub-elite athletes....
In aviation, emotion and cognitive workload can considerably increase the probability of human error. An accurate online physiological monitoring of pilot's mental state could prevent accidents. The h...
To evaluate if high-intensity interval training (HIIT) with a lower time commitment can be equally effective as endurance training (END) on glycemic control, physical fitness and body composition in i...
We hypothesized that along with exercise, casein peptide supplementation would have a higher impact on improving glucose tolerance than intact casein. Male six-week-old ICR mice were provided a high-f...
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.
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.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
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.
