Summary
Brief summary
Assessing the impact of exercise (one hour, 3 times weekly on dialysis) using a bicycle ergometer for 3 months, on arterial stiffness (and therefore cardiovascular health) in patients on haemodialysis. Using pulse wave velocity (non invasive applanation tonometry) to measure the changes in degree of arterial siffness
