About this trial

This trial is recruiting individuals with spinal cord injuries to test the effect of kayak simulation (ergometer) training on trunk control, cardiovascular function, and independence. A kayak ergometer is a device similar to a rowing machine. Participants will be randomized to train either: 1) with the kayak ergometer; or 2) without the kayak ergometer, focusing on trunk control. Training sessions will last 30 minutes, 5 times a week for 6 weeks.
