Clinical Trial Summary

Evaluate and compare the health benefits of an at home exercise program using functional electrical stimulation (FES) for lower extremity exercise with diet versus a diet alone group in adults with spinal cord injury.

Clinical Trial Description

The purpose of this proposal is to evaluate and compare the health benefits of home-based functional electrical stimulation leg cycle ergometry plus diet (HBFESLCE + Diet) to home-based (HB) Diet alone. This is a randomized, baseline-controlled, prospective, interventional trial to assess the impact of a 16-week exercise and/or diet intervention on selected fitness parameters in adults with high SCI. Primary outcome measures will include body composition by iDXA, insulin sensitivity, glucose effectiveness and BMR, while secondary outcomes will include lower extremity BMC and density, lipid profiles, and hsCRP determined before and after the 16-week interventions. Subjects will be randomly assigned to either HBFES LCE + Diet on an RT300 ergometer or Home-based (HB) Diet Alone intervention. Both groups will be routinely monitored via telemedicine while at home. ;
