Clinical Neurophysiology

Do mild breathing bouts of low oxygen reduce spasticity in persons with SCI? Why?

This study investigates the effects of low O2 therapy on abnormal muscle coordination in persons with spinal cord injuries. To participate, you must have sustained a spinal cord injury more than 6 months ago.

You will be compensated for each visit and in some cases for travel and lodging.

Study duration: 3 weeks, 2 visits

Participation in these studies may require:

  • Screening visits (2-3 hours): Testing of leg movement in response to breathing intervention

  • Assessment visits (2-3 hours): Testing of leg movement in response
