To evaluate that effect of exercise in spinal cord injuried patients, the continuous exercise program during 5 months was applied to 9 patients with spinal cord injury, then they were investigated of cardiopulmonary function and level of blood lactate and lipid between pre and post-exercise program.

The results obtained as follows;

1) As a result of exercise loading test,

(1) Maximal heart rate and VO2 max, as the cardiopulmonary function show no significant change between pre and post-exercise program.

(2) Blood lactate concentration represent meaning value that 4.73 ± 2.81 mM and 8.60 ±3.78 mM before and after exercise program, therefore show improvement of capacity of anaerobic exercise (p<0.05).

2) As the blood lipid components before and after exercise program:

(1) Total cholesterol revealed insignificant result that 147.8 ± 29.0 mg/dl and 160.8±40.4 mg/dl (p>0.1).

(2) Blood triglyceride appeared insignificant decrement that 302.2 ± 211.7 mg/dl and 183.3 ± 131.5 mg/dl (p>0.1)

(3) HDL-Cholesterol revealed meaning increment that 28.4±5.7 mg/dl and 37.6 ± 3.5 mg/dl (p<0.001).

(4) The C-ratio was diminished significantly that 5.29 ± 1.02 and 4.25 ± 0.87 (p<0.05).

Therefore, a continuous exercise in spinal cord injuried patients bring about improvement of ability of anaerobic exercise and prevention of arterosclerosis and ischemic heart disease.
