PROMOTE: Promotion of the Mind Through Exercise

2014-08-27 03:17:26 | BioPortfolio


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.

The Effectiveness of Progressive Aerobic Interval Training in Cardiac Rehabilitation.

Aerobic interval training (AIT) has recently emerged as a more effective strategy than moderate intensity continuous exercise (MICE) for improving VO2peak in CAD patients. The primary purpose of this ...

Effect of exercise order of combined aerobic and resistance training on arterial stiffness in older men.

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...

Exercise Training Mitigates Multi-System Deconditioning during Bed Rest.

Aerobic exercise prior to task-specific training to improve poststroke motor function: A case series.

Aerobic exercise can improve upper limb motor function in both healthy and stroke populations. Research in animals after stroke has shown that aerobic exercise combined with forelimb motor training im...

Comparative Effectiveness of Low-Volume Time-Efficient Resistance Training Versus Endurance Training in Patients With Heart Failure.

Cardiorespiratory fitness is positively related to heart failure (HF) prognosis, but lack of time and low energy are barriers for adherence to exercise. We, therefore, compared the effect of low-volum...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
