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:

  • 1st Visit: During the first visit, you will be screened and your motor function will be tested.
  • 2nd - 4 Visits: A number of cognitive and motor function test batteries will be administered before and after a 20-minute stationary cycling session.

Each visit will last approximately 1 - 2 hours.

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
