Exercise and Rehabilitation After Traumatic Brain Injury
“Exercise and Rehabilitation After Traumatic Brain Injury”
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of exercise on recovery after traumatic brain injury. Investigators will determine if exercise enhances rehabilitation by increasing substances (proteins) that can facilitate recovery.
Aerobic Exercise (AER)
Aerobic exercise will be performed with a treadmill or stationary tandem bike 3 times per week. Each exercise session will take about 30 minutes plus 5 to 10 min of warm-up and cool-down. Participants will wear a safety harness.
Rehabilitative program is focused on completion of activities of daily living, initiation, appropriate behavior and community integration for five days per week at the Centre for Neuro Skills.
