Acute cardiovascular responses to eccentric muscle contractions in stroke survivors.

Project Details


An investigation into haemodynamic responses (stroke volume, heart rate, cardiac output, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, systemic vascular resistance, and mean arterial pressure) in response to eccentric muscle contractions at varying intensities. Five sets of eccentric contractions will be performed in total, which includes a sub-maximal warm-up set, followed by one set at 20, 30, 40, and 50%, respectively to examine the effect of eccentric exercise intensity on a cardiovascular function to determine the safest intensity to prescribe to those who have suffered from stroke.
