Found (10) clinical trials

A clinical trial seeking patients for a research study for the treatment of Cerebral Palsy

Objective The purpose of this protocol is to evaluate several configurations of a prototype Extension Assist Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthosis (EA-KAFO) in patients with cerebral palsy (CP), muscular dystrophy (MD), spina bifida (SB), or incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI) who have knee extension deficiency. Three forms of assistance will be provided at ...

Phase N/A

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study to evaluate Myasthenia Gravis, Myopathy, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Cerebrovascular accident, Parkinson's Disease

Speech and swallowing abnormalities are important symptoms associated with disorders of the central nervous system, motor neuron disease (such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), myasthenia gravis, and primary muscle conditions. In addition to characterizing the evolution in muscle architecture that could underlie associated orofacial weakness, identifying new ways to measure these ...

Phase N/A

A clinical trial sponsored by National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) for a research study for the treatment of Amyotonia Congenita, Cerebral Palsy

Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is defined as an individual s perception of his or her well-being and satisfaction with their current circumstances. As is oftentimes the case, in childhood-onset neuromuscular disease (NMD) and cerebral palsy (CP), no definitive cures currently exist. As a result, the primary goal of treatment ...

Phase N/A

A clinical trial to evaluate treatments for patients with Cerebral Palsy

OBJECTIVE Portable neural imaging during functional tasks is now possible utilizing noninvasive near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) which identifies areas of brain activity by measuring blood flow dynamics and electroencephalography (EEG) which measures electrical activity on the cortical surface. Use of these technologies for studying movement is rapidly increasing; however, investigations in ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Intensive Therapy on Quantitative and Qualitative Parameters of Trunk and Lower Limbs in Children With Spastic Cerebral Palsy.

Research on the effects of physiotherapeutic interventions in children with CP has grown expansively, and shows a wide diversity of techniques and concepts that are used in variable intensity. Until now there is no consensus on the optimal intensity of these interventions to have a positive impact on the activity ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Balance and Respiratory Muscle Training on Functional Capacity Balance Respiratory Function and Respiratory Muscle Strength in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a permanent, non-progressive disorder in which the immature brain is affected by various causes in the prenatal, perinatal or postnatal period. Damage to the central nervous system in children with CP causes motor problems, balance and postural disorders. It is reported in the literature that the ...

Phase N/A

Whole Body Vibration for Children and Young Adults With Moderate Severity of Cerebral Palsy

Osteopenia is common in children with cerebral palsy (CP) due to poor bone growth and muscle disuse and the problem extends to their adulthood. These children and young adults with CP, especially those with moderate physical disabilities, are unable to perform the required amount of exercise to improve their bone ...

Phase N/A

To Compare the Effectiveness of 3 Different Types of Lens and Lens Coating in Eliminating Symptoms for Children With Prolonged Visual Symptoms Due to a Concussion.

Recent studies have shown children who sustain a concussion are susceptible to having chronic symptoms (post-concussion syndrome). This chronicity can lead to delays in returning to learn and returning to play. Blurry vision, double vision, eye strain and eye tracking problems are some of the reported chronic symptoms that can ...

Phase N/A

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study to evaluate Cerebrovascular accident, Spinal Cord Injury, People With Impaired Lower Extremity Function, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Cerebral Palsy

People with central nervous system disorders such as spinal cord injury, stroke, cerebral palsy, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, etc often have impaired lower extremity function that limits activities of daily life and independence. Different body-weight support systems have been developed to facilitate the rehabilitation process by compensating for the user's ...

Phase N/A

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study for the treatment of Cerebral Palsy

Analysis of spontaneous movements in young infants from video recordings is recommended as an early medical assessment tool for prediction of cerebral palsy in high-risk infants. Such video recording have previously been performed in follow-up programs at hospitals using semi standardized video set-ups. The research group behind this study develops ...
