Matt is an experienced coordinator with a Master’s degree in exercise physiology. He works on projects in both the Cardiovascular-Autonomic and Neurorehabilitation programs at the JJPVAMC. His main focus is the study of how SCI disrupts normal blood pressure regulation and the benefit of medications and/or electrical spinal stimulation to keep blood pressure in the normal range while sitting. Keeping blood pressure normal while seated upright should help maintain brain blood flow and improve thinking, memory and quality of life in persons with SCI.
