2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Burn injuries can affect how well you are able to perform daily activities. The reason this study is being done is to find out if aerobic exercise helps burn patients recover function, strength and stamina.

Participants will come to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Burn Rehabilitation Gym for treadmill exercise sessions 3 days per week for 12 weeks. Participants will be tested for strength and stamina before the start of the 12 week program, at the end of the 12 week program, as well as 6 months, 1 year and 2 years after the end of the 12 week program.

Patients who recently suffered a burn injury and who were discharged from the hospital in the past six months may be eligible to participate.
