OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation of high and low frequency and intensity, performed during hemodialysis (HD), on physical function and inflammation markers in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). DESIGN: Randomized clinical trial SETTING: Hemodialysis clinic. PARTICIPANTS: 51 CKD patients were randomized into blocks of four by means of opaque envelopes. They were divided into a group of high frequency and intensity neuromuscular electrical stimulation (HG) and a group of low frequency and intensity neuromuscular electrical stimulation (LG)...

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a life changing event that, as a result of paralysis, negatively influences habitual levels of physical activity and hence cardiometabolic health. Performing regular structured exercise therefore appears extremely important in persons with SCI. However, exercise options are mainly limited to the upper-body, which involves a smaller activated muscle mass compared to the mainly leg-based activities commonly performed by non-disabled individuals. Current exercise guidelines for SCI focus predominantly on relative short durations of moderate-intensity aerobic arm cranking exercise, yet contemporary evidence suggests this is not sufficient to induce meaningful improvements in risk factors for the prevention of cardiometabolic disease in this population...
