This is an exploratory study designed to investigate the effects of aerobic dual belt treadmill walking versus traditional treadmill exercise on gait performance and functional capacity in...
This study will test the hypothesis that the anti-gravity treadmill can be safely used in stress nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging in patients unable to perform conventional treadmill e...
Cognitive impairment is highly prevalent, poorly-managed, and disabling in persons with MS and exercise training might represent a promising approach to manage this symptom of the disease....
The primary objective is to evaluate water based treadmill exercise, land based treadmill exercise, and upright cycling in meeting American College of Sports Medicine exercise goals for mo...
The purpose of this research proposal is to conduct a feasibility study to determine the viability a larger efficacy study of combined acupuncture treatments plus treadmill exercise to dec...
Lipoxin A (LXA), a kind of adipokines, is a potent stop signal of inflammation. Our preliminary study found that LXA of serum and intra-articular lavage fluid (IALF) was rapidly elevated in 2 h and ...
Adverse cardiovascular findings associated with habitual vigorous exercise have raised new questions regarding the benefits of exercise and fitness.
A high-fat diet (HFD) is known to induce metabolic disturbances that may lead to cognitive impairment. In the present study, we investigated whether a regular treadmill exercise program would improve ...
Obesity induces oxidative stress by causing hyperglycemia and insulin resistance, while contributing to cognitive and memory decline by inducing insulin resistance in the brain and hyperphosphorylatio...
The purpose of this study was to determine the response, in rat, to chronic physical activity in small and large DRG neurons. Rats were cage-confined or underwent 16-18 weeks of daily increased activi...
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
