Clinical Trial Summary

The objectives of the study are to evaluate a 4-week mixed training paradigm consisting of explosive strength training and balance perturbation training efficacy on balance control during standing and locomotion, and to understand the mechanisms of neuroplasticity that would improve sensorimotor integration at supraspinal and spinal levels.


Clinical Trial Description

After obtaining their consent, participants will undertake evaluations at different times: 1. Assessment 1 week prior to training 2. Training over 4 weeks (nature of the training depends on the group) 3. Assessment 1 week after training 4. Assessment 1 month after training (follow-up) Each assessment will be divided in 2 sessions and data will be collected over 2 days, at one session per day. Days can be consecutive or non-consecutive but will be within a given week. The assessment consists of: - Session 1 (S1; duration: 3h) will include presentation of the Study and obtainment of consent, clinical tests, galvanic vestibular stimulation testing, postural reactions and gait assessment. - Session 2 (S2; duration: 3h) will include muscle strength, short-afference inhibition, paired pulse and trans cranial magnetic stimulation conditioning of H reflex. After the initial assessment, iSCI participants will be separated in 2 groups and will receive combination of explosive strength and balance training or no intervention. The training will span over 12 sessions (3 times per week for 4 weeks) and each training session will last approximately 1h (including effective training and installation periods). ;
