2015: VA Palo Alto Health Care System, California, USA
Researchers at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System are looking for volunteers to participate in a VA funded study about changes in bone health following spinal cord injury. All participants will receive four bone density scans over a 9-month period. Some participants will also take part in a rowing exercise program 3 times per week for 9 months which will use functional electrical stimulation of the legs muscle to perform the rowing action.
