The investigators will conduct a proof-of-concept study to provide preliminary evidence of efficacy of aerobic-based exercise training for maintaining cognitive function, executive function, and everyday function in adults with mild vascular cognitive impairment.
A total of 70 adults diagnosed with Ischaemic Vascular Cognitive Impairment (SIVCI) will be randomized to either a 6 month thrice weekly walking program or usual care. After 6 months of intervention, they will be followed for an additional 6 months. There will be three measurement sessions: baseline, 6 months (end of intervention period); and 12 months.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study is designed to investigate if aerobic exercise during and after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NACRT) can improve outcomes for rectal cancer patients. Rectal cancer patients wi...
This study evaluates the brain correlates of Cognitive Training and Aerobic Exercise in schizophrenia. A third of participants will receive Cognitive Training plus Standard Care for schizo...
The aim of the study is to compare the effect of water-based and land-based exercise training, and usual care (no exercise training) in patient with coronary artery disease, on exercise ca...
This study evaluates the effects of the combined exercise training (aerobic more resistance) and of the aerobic exercise training isolated compared to control group, which performed only s...
This pilot study intends to evaluate an online exercise video rehabilitation program for stroke survivors with moderate disability compared to usual care. The intervention videos combine a...
Arterial stiffness increases with advancing age, and is as an emerging biomarker in the assessment of vascular health. Some studies suggest that high-intensity resistance training increases arterial s...
This study investigated the safety and effectiveness of a new integrated aerobic and resistance exercise training prescription (SPRINT) using two different sets of exercise equipment: a suite of large...
Exercise training is recommended for improving health and protecting against the development of metabolic and cardiovascular pathologies. Combined resistance and aerobic exercise training (CRAE) has b...
Aerobic exercise is as important for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) as for the general population; however, the approach to aerobic training may require some adaptation. The objective o...
Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a protein that plays a critical role in modulating cognition in animals and humans. Aerobic exercise often increases BDNF in adults, but effects of this exe...
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.
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.
Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
