We seek to quantify the serum inflammatory markers in individuals with SCI, and correlate inflammation with responsiveness to AIH therapy.
Participants in this study will:
- Attend 2 sessions at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, about 1 week apart, each lasting about 4 hours
- Be fitted with a face-mask, and be provided with brief episodes of lower levels of oxygen alternating with normal room air.
- Be asked to complete 2 blood draws and 2 sessions of ankle strength measurements ( with ultrasound.)
