Myoelectric Upper Limb Orthosis Use by Persons With Traumatic Brain Injury

This study has two aims: (1) to evaluate therapeutic and neuroplastic effects of a myoelectric upper limb orthosis and (2) to evaluate the functional effects of a myoelectric upper limb orthosis. The investigators plan to recruit 15 Veterans and non-veterans who have Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and upper limb impairment, ...

Phase N/A

Dual-task Assessment and Rehabilitation for Individuals With Residual Symptoms After mTBI

This research aims to develop an intervention that combines mTBI-specific motor and cognitive challenges into a progressive and challenging rehabilitation program. We plan to develop and refine a combined motor and cognitive intervention using healthy athletic young adults (n=12) and people with a positive history of non-resolving mTBI (n=12). We ...

Phase N/A

Illuminating Neuropsychological Dysfunction and Systemic Inflammatory Mechanisms Gleaned After Hospitalization in Trauma-ICU Study

Cognitive skills are the crucial abilities required to manage money, maintain employment, and live independently. Long-term cognitive impairment (LTCI) is a disabling loss of these skills that can persist for months to years. LTCI frequently occurs after primary brain injury (e.g., traumatic brain injury, hypoxia), but older LTCI research has ...

Phase N/A

Improving Ambulatory Community Access After Paralysis

In a surgical procedure electrodes are inserted into muscles of the lower extremities to correct hip, knee and ankle function. The electrode leads are connected to an implanted pulse generator located in the abdomen. After a typical post-operative period of two to five days, the recipient will be discharged home ...

Phase

Influence of Respiratory Gases Conditioning on Aerosol Delivery During Invasive Ventilation

The intention is to enroll a specific sample of intubated patients. To compare the effect of respiratory gas conditioning on lung deposition and considering the well-known influences of lung pathology on lung deposition, intubated patients with healthy lungs will be included. Postoperative neurosurgery ventilated patients respond perfectly to this criteria. ...

Phase N/A

LEAP a New Overground Body Weight Support Robot: Usability Trial

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

Hypothermic Oxygenated Machine Perfusion of Extended Criteria Kidney Allografts From Brain Death Donors

The present trial is an investigator-initiated pilot study on the effects of HOPE on ECD-allografts in DBD KT. Fifteen kidney allografts with defined inclusion/exclusion criteria will be submitted to 2 hours of HOPE via the renal artery before implantation and are going to be compared to a case matched group ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Randomisation of an Antifibrinolytic in Significant Head Injury

BACKGROUND: Worldwide, over 10 million people are killed or hospitalised because of traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. About 90% of deaths from TBI occur in low and middle income countries. TBI mostly affects young adults and many experiencing long lasting or permanent disability. The social and economic burden of ...

Phase

Neuroimaging Biomarker for Seizures

Numerous Veterans and civilians have seizures, which can be epileptic or nonepileptic in nature. Epileptic seizures are caused by abnormal brain cell firing. Nonepileptic seizures appear similar to epileptic seizures, but are associated with traumatic experiences and underlying psychological stressors. Both types of seizure are common and disabling, and many ...

Phase N/A

Mechanical Ventilation in Severe Brain Injury: The Effect of Positive End Expiratory Pressure on Intracranial Pressure

The purpose of this study is to collect physiologic data from patients with severe brain injury who require mechanical ventilation in order to describe the impact of ventilation, specifically positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP), on intracranial pressure (ICP).
