“Postprandial Lipid Tracer and Exercise in Spinal Cord Injury”
This study investigates the effect of upper extremity exercise on postprandial lipemia (PPL) in persons with spinal cord injury (SCI). Participants are measured at rest and fed a standardized meal following seated rest (CON) or arm cycling exercise (ACE). The meal is infused with "stable isotope lipid tracers" that allow for determination of the end fates of the fat in the meal.
Behavioral - Seated control (CON)
Behavioral - Arm cycle exercise (ACE)
Arm cycling at a continuous power output
Behavioral - Liquid meal
Liquid meal of 0.5 L volume containing 20 kcal/kg fat free mass (FFM) and 5 mg/kg FFM of uniformly 13-carbon labeled palmitate ([U-13C]palmitate) at a macronutrient distribution of 50% carbohydrate, 35% fat, and 15% protein (by kcal).
