Abstract:
Study examined whether home based electrical stimulation ergometers are used consistently and to what benefit. Twenty- eight spinal cord injured subjects participated in a home study and provided questionnaire data on the use of the bicycle ergometer. The trend identified was either one of regular exercise or early discontinued use. No predictors of who would develop a continuous treatment use was identified. The cost effectiveness of home ergometers is in question and an alternate training program needs to be considered.
