In par­tic­u­lar, ­all infor­ma­tion ­which ­can be ­employed to devel­op ration­al ­and ­safe train­ing ­and reha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­grams ­are report­ed. Accordingly, ­the ­main car­di­o­vas­cu­lar adjust­ments dur­ing exer­cise, as ­well as ­the phys­io­log­i­cal respons­es of para­ple­gic sub­jects dur­ing exer­cise ­are com­pre­hen­sive­ly ­addressed. Besides, ­the poten­tial ben­e­fits of phys­i­cal activ­ity in ­this spe­cif­ic sub­set of indi­vid­u­als ­are con­sid­ered, ­while ­the prin­ci­ples of exer­cise pre­scrip­tion ­for ­the para­ple­gic ­patient ­are ­also includ­ed.
