A Preliminary Study of Leisure-Time Wheeling and Aerobic Fitness in People with Spinal Cord Injury, pp. 579-592 $100.00
Authors:  Rebecca L. Bassett, Amy Latimer and Kathleen A. Martin Ginis
Abstract:
Background: The relationship between leisure-time (LT)-wheeling and aerobic
fitness (fitness, V02peak) has never been examined among people with spinal cord injury
(SCI). Evidence-based physical activity guidelines (e.g., the specific types and amounts
of physical activity required to produce specific health and fitness outcomes) are
necessary for the SCI population in order to improve long-term prognosis. Understanding
the relationship between fitness and specific types and durations of activity is an
important step in the development of such guidelines.
Objectives: To examine whether fitness was more strongly correlated with LTwheeling
performed in longer bouts (>10 min) versus cumulative LT-wheeling.
Methods: Individuals with SCI (N=43, 70% male, 67% with paraplegia, 61%
complete SCI, M age = 39.91 years, M years post SCI = 11.70) recalled wheeling
activities and performed an arm ergometer test to determine fitness. Statistical analyses
consisted of correlational analyses and Steigerís z-tests.
Results: Cumulative LT-wheeling was positively correlated with fitness. There were
no differences in the relationship between fitness and cumulative LT-wheeling versus
fitness and bouts > 10 minutes.
Conclusions: Results indicate that LT-wheeling is positively correlated with fitness.
LT-wheeling of shorter or longer bouts have a comparable relationship with fitness.
