Effect of Vibration on Muscle Properties Physical Activity and Balance in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a movement disorder that affects over 800,000 people in the U.S. Due to the limited mobility associated with the disorder, individuals with CP have an increased risk of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and osteoporosis, compared to the general population. Therefore, identifying treatment ...

Impact of Acute Cerebral Diseases on the Autonomous Nervous System: Progression and Correlation to Therapy and Outcome

The pupilometer determines the alteration of the pupil diameter after a defined light stimulus providing information of the autonomic nerve system. The result collecting from pupillometry is objective and more precise than the subjective-visual evaluation of the pupil and its reactivity. In this observational study data is collected from pupilometer ...

Advancing Research and Treatment for Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (ARTFL)

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FTLD) is the neuropathological term for a collection of rare neurodegenerative diseases that correspond to four main overlapping clinical syndromes: frontotemporal dementia (FTD), primary progressive aphasia (PPA), corticobasal degeneration syndrome (CBS) and progressive supranuclear palsy syndrome (PSPS). The goal of this study is to build a FTLD ...

Phase N/A

Profiling Children and Youth With Cerebral Palsy in Relation to Feeding and Nutrition

Coordinating health care professionals (HCPs; e.g. paediatric neurologists, physiotherapists) in different centres across different countries will be asked to participate in this cross-sectional study. for the HCP to fill out a questionnaire about their CP child, related to general subject characteristics, motor function, co-morbidities, type of therapies, anthropometry, feeding mode ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Study of Scoliosis in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Bracing severe neuromuscular scoliotic curves rarely serves as definitive treatment, thus most progressive curves require surgical intervention in order to sustain or improve sitting (or ambulatory) abilities. Surgery is a demanding intervention for these patients, with variable functional gains. Controversy persists regarding indications for surgery, timing, and technique. Concerns about ...

Phase N/A

A Comparison: High Intense Periodic vs. Every Week Therapy in Children With Cerebral Palsy (ACHIEVE)

The overall goal of this project is to compare the effectiveness of high intense periodic and usual weekly therapy in treating Cerebral Palsy (CP) in children 2-8 years of age for motor rehabilitation. In this prospective randomized controlled trial (RCT), 300 children ages 2 to 8 years of age with ...

Phase N/A

Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Study (VFSS)

DDS signals and VFSS will be recorded simultaneously (for the same bolus) using barium contrast agent stimuli prepared in three consistencies: thin, mildly-thick and moderately-thick. Subjects will undergo VFSS with simultaneous DDS using up to 5 boluses of thin barium stimulus ("THIN-Ba"), and up to 4 boluses of barium thickened ...

Daily and Weekly Rehabilitation Delivery for Young Children With Cerebral Palsy

Determining optimal frequency of treatment for young children with cerebral palsy (CP) has implications for shaping the future of pediatric rehabilitation. There are wide variations in the number of hours per week of treatment in current outpatient rehabilitation programs for children with CP, suggesting clinical uncertainty. Usual weekly therapy at ...

Phase N/A

Contralaterally Controlled FES for Hand Opening in Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy

Rehabilitation clinic sessions - These will occur up to twice per week for the first 3 weeks and once per week for the second 3 weeks of the 6 week treatment. They are therapist-guided and last up to 90 min consisting of 45 minutes of contralaterally-controlled functional electrical stimulation (CCFES)-mediated ...

Phase N/A

ExAblate Transcranial MRgFUS for the Management of Treatment-Refractory Movement Disorders

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and initial effectiveness of MRI-guided focused ultrasound thermal ablation of a designated area in the brain of patients suffering from movement disorder symptoms: FUS under MRI-guidance and MRI-based thermometry can be safely delivered to patients suffering from treatment-refractory movement disorders ...
