Research is a vital component to the foundation of our business and it is one of the differentiators that separates Neuro Ex from many other facilities and programs. We partner with universities, hospitals, and manufacturers to investigate the effects of current techniques and novel interventions on the populations that we serve. Our goal is to continue to seek out the knowledge necessary to design an optimal training program for each of our clients.
Below you will find descriptions of current research projects we are involved in as well as abstracts from manuscripts published in peer reviewed journals. We invite you to review some of our ground-breaking work and we welcome your questions.
High Intensity Training Study
Men and women ages 18 – 60 years old with spinal cord injury who are currently completing regular physical activity are needed to participate in a study investigating the practicality and utility of interval exercise (brief, intense bouts of exercise). The study requires:
- prospective participants to be healthy and not currently taking medications affecting physical function.
- four (4) visits to CSU—San Marcos over a 2 to 3 week period for a total time commitment of about 3 hours.
- during each visit, you will complete intense bouts of arm cranking during which various physical and perceptual measures will be performed.
- you will be paid $25.00 per visit for a total of $100.00 upon completion of this 4-day study.
Please contact Dr. Todd A. Astorino, Professor, Dept. of Kinesiology, CSU—San Marcos, firstname.lastname@example.org or 760-750-7351, for more information about this study.
