The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of a respiratory resistance trainer will increase respiratory muscle strength, improve sleep quality and improve quality of life in individuals with spinal cord injury.
Hypothesis: Use of the respiratory resistance trainer will improve respiratory muscle strength, improve sleep quality, and improve quality of life among individuals with spinal cord injury.

- Number of Participants With Improvement in Sleep Quality. [ Time Frame: 10 weeks ]Improvement in sleep quality as defined by: less fragmented sleep, lower apnea hypopnea index (AHI), respiratory disturbance index (RDI) after device use.
- Change in Maximum Voluntary Ventilation Using Pulmonary Function Device [ Time Frame: 10 weeks ]Pulmonary function device measures flow rate in liters per minute over a period of at least 12 seconds.
- Change in Negative Inspiratory Force Using a Pressure Manometer [ Time Frame: 10 weeks ]
