Chronic stroke survivors needed for research
The effects of Assisted Cycling Therapy on motor and cognitive function
Assisted Cycling Therapy is a novel and promising stationary exercise modality, which has shown to improve motor and cognitive function in Parkinson's disease patients and people with Down syndrome.
How the study works:
4 visits total to our lab:
Each visit will last approximately 1 - 2 hours.
|You will receive a $25 gift card per visit = $100|
|The ability to walk is not a prerequisite for this study|
ASU's Downtown Campus
Program in Physical Therapy-Phoenix Biomedical Campus
Northern Arizona University Physical Therapy Researchers are seeking people who have had a stroke to participate in a treadmill walking study.
This study will measure improvements in fitness as a result of walking at preferred and faster speeds on a treadmill.
Participants will be asked to train twice weekly for 10 weeks in the Physical Therapy laboratory on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus: 435 N. 5th St, Phoenix, AZ 85004.
Participants will also be asked to walk at home once per week, and will be given a heart rate monitor and step counting device to monitor walking.
This is a great way to get exercise and improve your walking endurance!
Free parking is available on our campus for participants.
To participate you must:
- Have had a stroke at least 6 months ago
- Have weakness or paralysis in one of your legs
- Be at least 18 years old
- Have no other medical conditions that prevent you from walking on a
- treadmill with support for at least 15 minutes at a time
