Excerpt:

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a complex medical condition affecting as much as 36% of the Veteran population. Both empirical and anecdotal evidence identify elevations in fatigability as a major health concern in Veterans with CKD predialysis. Neuromuscular deteriorations resulting from CKD are likely to contribute to excessive fatigability, impacting an individual’s functional status. Flywheel resistance exercise (FRE) uses inertial resistance to allow for optimal muscle loading through the e...
