Home Based Tele-exercise for People With Chronic Neurological Impairments

Acronym
Telex

Summary
To assess the impact of a 12-week virtual seated physical intervention on cardiovascular health and wellness in people with chronic neurological impairments (CNI).

Detailed Description
This study aims to examine how effective seated Zoom exercise classes are for a person with CNI for addressing cardiovascular health, physical wellness and quality of life. If these classes prove to be effective, online platforms could be a viable avenue for those with CNI to exercise and increase/maintain wellness without having to leave their homes. The investigators are also attempting to determine if a class with a live instructor vs a pre-recorded class has an effect on motivation, compliance, exertion and modifications/safety. The entire process, including screening and consenting, will be done via Zoom and Redcap, potentially providing a blueprint for the future studies. This process can enable participants to participate in studies with minimal inconvenience, expense and effort of traveling for the consent process.

Arms
Live zoom exercise classes Experimental Participants will engage in a live zoom exercise session. Participants will undergo 45 minutes of aerobic exercise intervention, three times a week, for a period of 12 weeks. Exercise will include repetitive bouts of high intensity exercises with intermittent periods of rest or active recovery. circuit of moves like 'jabs', 'hooks' etc, and a strength and endurance class that promotes postural awareness.
Recorded zoom exercise classes Active Comparator Participants will undergo 45 minutes of aerobic exercise intervention, three times a week, for a period of 12 weeks, using a pre-recorded class that they can do according to their own schedule. Exercise will include repetitive bouts of high intensity exercises with intermittent periods of rest or active recovery. circuit of moves like 'jabs', 'hooks' etc, and a strength and endurance class that promotes postural awareness.
