RESULTS

Found (36) clinical trials

The purpose of the study is to better understand the use of nerve transfer surgery on patients with spinal cord injuries. This study lasts up to 24 months. All study visits are performed at standard of care visits at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months post-operatively. There will be standard ...

Phase N/A

Researchers at the University of Kentucky are inviting you to participate in a noninvasive, painless study that will involve: Recording of brain signals from electrodes on your scalp while you perform a repetitive hand grip task Brief peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) in response to changes detected in your brain signals ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of an Advanced Lower Extremity Neuroprostheses

Protocol Outline: Patents undergo surgery in which electrodes are implanted into muscles of the trunk and legs. Electrode leads are connected to an stimulator/telemeter. Following implantation, patients undergo training in standing, transfers and other advanced mobility skills using the functional electrical stimulation system. A prescribed course of exercise, functional training ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Vibration Therapy on the Bone Density of the Tiba in Patients With Spinal Cord Injury

The purpose of this investigation is to determine the effect of lower limb vibration therapy on bone density in the tibia in patients with spinal cord injury. The second purpose is to assess the neuromuscular junction variability at the motor units of the tibialis anterior muscle after a sequence of ...

Treatment of Mild to Moderate Depression Symptoms in Patients With Spinal Cord Injury

The successes of psychological and pharmacological modes of intervention in treating depression, both alone and combined, are well documented in the literature. While a great deal of research has identified specific clinical indications for many antidepressants currently available in the general population, little is known about the clinical indications of ...

Phase

Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Drainage and Cytokine Profiling in the Treatment of Acute Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

This pilot study will evaluate the safety and feasibility of a clinical trial protocol for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage as a potential treatment for patients with acute spinal cord injury. Specifically, the investigators will evaluate: - patient eligibility and recruitment for such a study and how soon CSF drainage can ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Spinal Cord Injury on Female Sexual Response

The long term aims of this project are to 1) Understand the effect of varying degrees and levels of SCI and dysfunction(SCI/D)on females sexual response: 2) Identify the specific neuronal pathways involved in female sexual responses; and 3) Develop and evaluate new assessment and treatment methods for neurogenic sexual dysfunction ...

Phase N/A

Measurement of Pulse Wave Velocity in Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke Patients

There are many diseases related to the dysfunction of sympathetic nerve activities in rehabilitation medicine. Shoulder hand syndrome, a common complication after having a cerebrovascular accident, is believed to combine with hyper-exciting of the sympathetic nerve at the lesion side. Autonomic dysfunction in spinal cord injury patients comes from the ...

Phase N/A

Development of an Instrumental Activities of Daily Living Scale

This study is to develop an IADL Scale for patients with SCI (IADL-SCI) and examine its psychometric properties in three years. In the first year, we will devote ourselves to the development of IADL-SCI – first version. About 150 patients will be recruited in this year. In the second year, ...
