Abstract
Introduction: Individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) face health disparities and a number of challenges in maintaining cardiovascular health compared to the able bodied population. The causes are multifactorial including susceptibility to numerous medical conditions that impart a health hazard; illness behaviors leading to a disproportionate percentage of deaths as a result of preventable causes and changes in the ability to exercise to maintain heart health. Therefore, establishing and providing effective interventions for individuals with SCI is vital, however, the majority of rehabilitation research has been performed in research laboratories. Aim: Aim of this study is to identify the possible physiological adaptations gained from utilizing a functional electrical stimulation (FES) bike for aerobic conditioning to address the increased prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors exhibited by the chronic SCI population, ASIA A-D in an outpatient clinic setting. Methods: Single-subject case study involved an individual with tetraplegia, enrolled in an outpatient wellness program. Participant engaged in a cardiovascular endurance exercise program using an FES bike 30 minutes, three times a week for six months in a clinical setting, supervised by a physical therapist. The following variables were measured at baseline and at the end of the six months intervention: Hemoglobin A1c, cholesterol (total, HDL/LDL ratio), and serum triglycerides. Results: Participant’s A1c, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides decreased and HDL cholesterol increased after six months of intervention. Conclusion: Cardiovascular conditioning with an FES bike conducted in an outpatient setting can reduce cardiovascular risk factors and facilitate health in individuals with chronic SCI.
