Effect of intradialytic physical activity on the quality of life, biological parameters and sleep in hemodialysis patients

Many side effects, in addition to those of the pathology itself, have occurred with hemodialysis treatment but existing literature have shown that physical activity is beneficial to hemodialysis patients. Nevertheless, our parameters have not been studied enough with a resistance training prog...
