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.)

Let's get connected.
