Improving Balance in TBI Using Virtual Reality

Traumatic Brain injury (TBI) is a major health concern for the U.S. military and civilian populations, resulting in more than 5.3 million people who require rehabilitation and assistance for the short and long-term consequences of TBI. TBI impairs the integration and organization of the visual, auditory and somatosensory inputs that ...

Phase N/A

ESWT as a Treatment for Chronic NHO in TBI Patients

PROTOCOL SYNOPSIS Title Effect of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy on Chronic Neurogenic Heterotopic Ossification in Traumatic Brain Injured (TBI) patients. The investigators primary objective is to determine whether Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is effective in reducing pain and improving function in people with traumatic brain injury who have heterotopic ...

Phase N/A

Control Study of Nautilus BrainPulse for the Detection of Concussion

This study is a non-blinded study in high school athletes who will be presumed to no be suffering from a concussion. Healthy controls will be recruited from high school sports that are not associated with physical contact, which could generate concussions. The primary objective of this study is to improve ...

Phase N/A

A Study of Modified Stem Cells in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

SB623 cells are adult bone-marrow-derived cells that are transiently transfected with a plasmid construct encoding the intracellular domain of human Notch-1. These cells produce trophic factors that protect neurons in models of ischemic insult. In a rat contusion model of TBI, implantation of SB623 around the area of the injury ...


Prospective Interventional Study Evaluating the Feasibility and Safety of the Esophageal Cooling Device

Controlling patient's body temperature, and in particular, reducing body temperature in a treatment referred to as targeted temperature management, has been shown to improve outcomes for many conditions, including neonatal hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, cardiac arrest, and traumatic brain injury. However, available modalities for inducing targeted temperature management have a number ...

Phase N/A

Development of a Neurocognitive Screening Test

This research study will evaluate a standalone software application and is designed to standardize and validate new neurocognitive screening testing for children aged 6 through 11, and adolescents and adults ages 12 through 75. The purpose of this study is to evaluate recently developed computerized tasks sensitive to changes in ...

Phase N/A

A Study to Assess the Effectiveness of the Nautilus BrainPulse as an Aid in the Diagnosis of Concussion

This is a prospective, non-randomized, blinded, matched control study of young athletes (ages 10-25 years old) in competitive sports (Cohort A: higher-risk of concussion, Cohort B: lower-risk of concussion) to assess the effectiveness of the Nautilus BrainPulse device when used as an aid in the diagnosis of concussion. The Nautilus ...

Phase N/A

An Evaluation of HS-1000 Device Capabilities in the Diagnosis and Assessment of Patients After Concussion

Concussion diagnosis and assessment suffers from lack of a gold-standard measurement, leaving physicians to rely on physical and neurological examinations, neurocognitive/mental status testing, and balance examination, which can be time-consuming and influenced by subjective factors. In order to address this significant drawback, there is a need for novel modalities that ...

Phase N/A

Indirect Intracranial Pressure Measurement in Patients With Suspected or Documented Concussion

Unlike fractures, concussion can be difficult to recognize and diagnose, given lack of specific diagnostic tests or clinical findings. Current diagnostic recommendations include a multi-factorial approach involving symptom inventory, baseline and post-injury neuropsychological assessment, and balance testing. Lacking from this paradigm is a truly objective measure of physiological changes associated ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)-Related Attention Deficits in Children

Symptoms of inattentiveness, impulsivity, and poor persistence have been observed in children following traumatic brain injury (TBI). These often are among the most prominent symptoms manifested and may contribute to interference in a variety of other functional domains. Although there has been some use of psychostimulant medication to treat TBI-acquired ...
