Active Comparator: Active cycling
Individuals will receive functional electrical stimulation while on the stationary bike and instructed to actively pedal.
Behavioral: Active cycling
The exercise program uses a stationary bike equipped with functional electrical stimulation (FES) of leg muscles. Participants are instructed to actively pedal while the FES is assisting. The training program is expected to be performed for one hour, three times a week for 12 weeks.
Sham Comparator: Passive cycling
Individuals will receive active functional electrical stimulation (FES) while on the stationary bike and instructed to relax their legs, allowing the FES to move their legs on the stationary bike.
Behavioral: Passive cycling
The exercise program uses a stationary bike equipped with functional electrical stimulation (FES) of leg muscles. Participants are instructed to sit passively on the stationary bile while the FES is assisting. The training program is expected to be performed for one hour, three times a week for 12 weeks.
Other Name: letting the functional electrical stimulation move the legs
- Change in timed 25 foot walk from baseline to end of training [ Time Frame: Participants are assessed at baseline (visit 1), one-month (visit 2), two-months (visit 3), three-months (visit 4), end of study (visit 5) ]Here we will assess whether a subjects walking speed is improved following active cycling with functional electrical stimulation. Our prediction is that individuals will improve in their walking function following seated active cycling with functional electrical stimulation.
