Tilt table have been done to help the patients with spinal cord lesion overcome postural hypotension and also to improve trunk balance and coordination.

This study was performed to observe the hemodynamic effects of head-up tilt in twenty-two patients with spinal cord lesion.

1) Most patients showed orthostatic hypotension and increased heart rate, and the changed amounts are larger upon patients with cervical cord injury than thoracic cord injury.

2) Amounts of decreased bleed pressure and increased heart rate were reduced by extended tilt duration in patients with spinal cord lesion.

3) In patients with cervical cord lesion, continual tilt table-using group showed less changing of blood pressure and heart rate than intermittent tilt table-using group.

Key Words: Tilt table, Orthostatic hypotension, Spinal cord injury
