1. Measurements of peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) at rest, during passive leg cycling (PLC), and PLC combined with VO2peak arm crank ergometry (ACE) in spinal cord injured (SCI) paraplegics. All parameters compared to Functional Electro Stimulated lower extremity cycling combined with ACE (FEShybrid) The hypothesis is that VO2peak is significantly higher during FES hybrid cycling when compared to work matched PLC and ACE.
2. Comparison of VO2 values and work efficiency during sub-maximal and high intensity work by arm crank (ACE) and wheelchair ergometry (WCE) in persons with spinal cord injury. The hypothesis is that wheelchair propulsion due to higher energy expenditure show higher work output and VO2peak than ACE.
3. Does 6 weeks of maximal strength training improve SCI subjects performance during WCE? WCE after 6 weeks maximal strength training is less strenuous owing to better work economy/ efficiency.

Any method of measuring the amount of work done by an organism, usually during PHYSICAL EXERTION. Ergometry also includes measures of power. Some instruments used in these determinations include the hand crank and the bicycle ergometer.
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.

Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
