Postprandial Lipid Tracer and Exercise in Spinal Cord Injury

Study Description

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.
