The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate 1) the effect of intradialytic pedaling
exercise on arterial stiffness and other arterial hemodynamic parameters over 4 months, and
2) the longer-term effect of pedaling on arterial stiffness and other arterial hemodynamic
parameters 4 months after finishing the exercise intervention (8 months after study
The investigators also aim to examine the impact of intradialytic pedaling exercise on
general health, anthropometric measures, physical function, and routine laboratory blood
markers as secondary outcome measures, as well as to assess feasibility, safety and adverse
events associated with the intradialytic pedalling exercise.
Recruitment of more participants in the future will be considered if warranted.
